There really isn't anything available that will run in a Windows environment as they need to run without any outside programs trying to access the memory while testing.

Memtest86+ has versions for bootable floppies, CDs and even USB sticks.

It is better if they run in their own os but it is not a must.

If you want something that you can run in windows then use this.

I've used it a few times and it has worked perfectly.
