My wife just go this error today on her pc. She was playing her Facebook games and listening to the bible streaming. As you know Scott, I've been trying some upgrades on the pc. One of which was adding this ram stick. However that was added to the system on Jan 12th. Thursday the 25th I upgraded the CPU and added the SSD. What do you think?

I may run This solution. However I'm not sure of the cause of this. All I did was open task manager and look and performance monitor. The system was using almost all 8GB of ram. I also saw that there were a ton errors or faults. So I closed up some of the windows she was using and let her get back to what she was doing. For now, everything seems to be fine.

Not sure if doing any of those upgrades could have caused this problem, or if it's a problem with the new ram stick.

There was a problem with Malwarebytes not starting web protection. I tried restarted the web protection but it didn't work. I did end up uninstalling Malwarebytes and reinstalling it. I've also updated Chrome which needed an update.

So I guess I should just let her continue to use the pc and see if the problem comes back. I have not run the Microsoft fix.

I never use or recommend "active" protection, that is anything that runs all the time. In many cases that is what ends up causing problems like this. Scott.

Ok well the problem hasn't happened again since I reinstalled Malwarbytes and the problem with the web protection hasn't reappeared.

Hey Scott,

Check this out.

Looks like that was the issue. The link confirms it!.

And that is exactly why I don't use or recommend any active (e.g. runs in the background all the time) protection. The "cure" is often worse than the disease! Scott.

I finally uninstalled Malwarebytes 3. Have a lifetime license but I tell you what, the old pc that had it on it, now runs much faster.
