    I had this same problem, as did some others. Check this post for solution details:

    Short answer is to edit your Windows HOSTS file to assign "media.adrevolver.com" the IP 127.0.0.1 - that prevents the destructive ads from loading and should fix the problem.

    Seerah: I checked the Interface and AddOns folder. They're not write-protected and I did add my user account with full privs to the "security" tab of the WoW folder and all subfolders.

    yyrkoon: I believe you are the winner! I must have missed your post when I was searching earlier, but I did what you did, adding "media.adrevolver.com" to my HOSTS file, pointing it to 127.0.0.1 and now, so far, WAU runs every time without crashing. So thank you very much! What an odd error, though!

    posted a message on WAU 1.9.44 Vista32 Protected Memory Crash at startup
    I've just started using the WowAceUpdater. When I first installed it via IE everything went fine, I was able to install it, run it, and update my addons. But every time I've tried to run it since then, it starts up, the main window opens and it looks like it's populating the window with a list of addons then boom.. crash, with the following error:

    "An unexpected error occurred. Please make sure you are connected to the internet and restart the application.

    Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt."


    I am definitely connected to the internet though. If I re-install the program via IE again, I can get it to run that once. But after that the same problem crops up again. I've looked through the forums and haven't seen any mention of this. I'm running Vista32, .NET 2.0 Runtime is installed, even added wowace.com to Trusted Sites in IE (though I don't use IE). I also modified the permissions on my C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft folder to give my account "full control".

    Any idea what's going on here and how to fix it? Thanks.
