Explorer.exe Application error

The instruction at 0x6ef5537 a referenced memory at 0x07da5000.The memory could not be read.
Click on OK to terminate the program.

It keeps popping up when i log in at my PC and no matter how many times i close it/press OK it keeps re-popping.
Any suggestions?

Hello gamwthmanasas and welcome to Seven Forums.

The first error code had no references when I googled it. One of the references to the second error code pertained to Java. Whenever I see unreferenced codes, the first thing I think of is malware. And since the second code might have something to do with Java, and Java has had several exploits in the past, malware is a definite possibility. If you have Java installed I would remove it. (You could always reinstall later if you absolutely need it. A lot of folks leave it uninstalled until such time they actually need it.)

How do I uninstall Java on my Windows computer ?

java.com: Java + You

I'd next suggest running a full scan with your installed anti-virus suite. No anti-malware program is 100% effective 100% of the time (if there was such a thing we'd all be using it.) So running some on-demand scanners is always a good idea. These are free and highly recommended on this Forum.
