You can get a free download at the link provided. Look on the left hand side and follow the link to 'Free Download'. Use the one labeled under: Memtest86 3.4a Release (27/Dec/2007). Then select the one named Pre-Compiled Memtest86 v3.4a installable from Windows and DOS.

It's normally recommended to let Memtest go through several passes - best to leave it run overnight.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

Let the memtest go over night..
If still no errors get your windows installation cd and do a strong repair (not from the repair console), choose install at the first option then the installation program will tell you that you got an version of windows install, now there will be another option to repair take it and now the installlation will reinstall windows right over the old keeping all installed applications and settings.

After the install you have to reupdate windows so apply the SP3 and then do a microsoft update to be ontop with all the lastest patches.

This should fix most of the heavy problems you got.
Dont want to have problems with your computer?
Solution : install a good free anti virus, anti spyware & and stay away from misleading applications. Update your OS and vital programs as often as you can, to shut down those open security holes.
Stay away from shareware and trailware applications, avoid installing browser addins and toolbars. Read up on things before trying new applications.
