I don't know what that program is doing, but I can't get you a screenshot, it won't let me and now everything is running really slow. Is there not another way to find out? Thanks

okay good, as long as your computer is running really slow thats all that i care about. Does it say something about iterations?

Now that it's been running really slow for a while check the temp. this will give us your temp at full load and allow us to determine if your cpu is overheating.

then turn down your overclocks until it is stable with no errors.

if it is possible, get your motherboard and power supply replaced, the reason is that my computer endured a lot of shut downs and what will happen is that parts that werent/arent the cause of the shut downs slowly get damaged too. So if it is possible exchange your motherboard and powersupply.
