Hi,

whenever i shutdown my computer, i get this error in a message box.
Application popup: acs.exe - Application Error : The instruction at "0x7c59d6f4" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be "read".

Click on OK to terminate the program
Click on CANCEL to debug the program"

Re: acs.exe creating error while shutting down

I think acs.exe related to Atheros Client Utility, therefore as first thing I suggest to upgrade HP WLAN W400-W500 Driver for Windows 2000/XP

and HP WLAN W400-W500 Atheros Client Utility
http://tinyurl.com/auo4u
to version 4

I would just remove then reload the wireless software.
