I am frequently getting a notice on my screen saying:
ccSvcHst.exe - Application Error
The instruction at "Ox78144580" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be "read".
Click on OK to terminate the program
Click on CANCEL to debug the program
It's easy enough to click OK or CANCEL to get rid of it, but it is so frequent that it's a nuisance. Can someone explain please why it happens and how to stop it.

This is a real pig of a fault - with quite a few reasons

two favourites are ... a badly behaved program (you don't say which is being terminated or what's running at the time!!)

or faulty RAM - generally the high end of the stack

the prog tries to access ram which is either marked as free ... but won't release when asked - and so can't be accessed .... or the memory is physically faulty and so can't be accessed ...

progs for graphics, video and adobe acrobat are favourites ... but any that use a big chunk of ram (or if you have a few open at once)

start by testing your ram

but then again it could be a number of other things as well
