XP Error 0x745f2780 and Problems with Services Not Starting after Booting


By steve - Posted on 22 March 2007

A client had a computer (one system out of several that are exactly the same) that kept throwing errors and failing to start services upon booting up. This caused problems because print sharing didn't work, sound didn't work, etc., but the system still booted up. The services were all set to start automatically. There was also a tendancy for windows update (svchost.exe) to throw an error like this:

The instruction at "0x745f2780" referenced memory at "0x00000070". The memory could not be "read".

Googling resulted in some advice about fixing it by running regsvr32 on some program components and disabling Windows update, but that doesn't fit our security strategy (it also didn't necessarily work).

It was looking kind of hopeless, but...

I found this Microsoft kb article 926781 that seems to have fixed the issue (so far).

You can download the XP patch here. It was released February 20, 2007. The article above has references to patches for Server 2003 and other editions of Windows. Check it if much time has passed since Feb 20, 2007 as additional patches may be available.
