shouldn't be anything with the memory then. When I had faulty ram it gave me errors in like 5 mins.

Definitely not an issue with RAM. Check for viruses and malware. Here are some links for freeware spyware programs:

Spybot Search & Destroy:

Ad-Aware SE Personal Edition:

I personally would stick with Spybot.

I used Ad-Aware twice, and both times I had to re-load settings, as it took out my NTL broadband with other spyware...

Hmm. I have never experienced that. Thanks for letting me in on that. I will keep my eye out for that.

Hehe, how many times did you have to use that?

Maybe they've updated the program since I last used it (version 6 personal I believe). I'm just scared of loading it up again.

lol I have build 1.05. I need to get a more up-to-date anti-spyware program. I think I'll just scrap Ad-Aware and stick with Spybot.

Thanks for the replies, all.

Yes, I do have Spyware S&D as well as Ad-Aware. Been too long since I ran them, however, as I had quite a few cases it turns out.

However, after running memtest for 3 days in a row, 8 hours a day, I finally found an error. I guess I'm going to have to have to pull one stick out at a time to see if I can find which stick is having the problem, now. This isn't going to be fun.
