wermgr.exe Application Error

I have a Windows 7 64 bit dv7 laptop. I had closed it to go do something, and when I came back and opened my laptop, an error message instantly appeared.


"The instruction at 0xfaaf114c referenced memory at 0xffffffff. The memory could not be read.


Click on OK to terminate the program."


Clicking on either the X at the top right or clicking on OK both close the window but an identical one replaces it. If I look under the task manager, there are around 20 instances of wermgr.exe. It doesn't use up any cpu that I can see, just memory.  Is there any way to stop this?

Re: wermgr.exe Application Error

I get the same error on my HP mini 5102. It's Win7 x86


I also cannot complete the memory test that is provided in preboot menu so I'm wondering if it's a memory issue.
