Gmod crashes at times when trying to load a prop, generating an icon or multiple icons,etc

It doesn’t happen all the time, but it’s starting to. It doesn’t it occur when spawning a specific prop/entity, neither. When the game crashes, I’m given this:

"the instruction at “0x1570593d” referenced memory at “0x123eb018”. The memory could not be “read”

What’s the problem?

System Specs would also be nice.

I’m not sure how to find the system specs. How do you find that on a Windows XP computer?

There are some suggested fixes here: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=1274-UOHK-5653

You can download and use Speccy (http://www.piriform.com/speccy). Make sure to include Processor, Memory, Video Card, etc

Virutal, that makes me thing of a virus. RUN!
