I would do a check on your RAM using Microsoft's Memory Diagnostic Tool or Memtest+86 for starters

This may help, MemTest Manual - http://hcidesign.com/memtest/manual.html

The .iso file you downloaded needs to be burned with an .iso-burning program to produce a bootable CD. To run the bootable CD, change your BIOS boot options (making the optical drive the first option), then reboot and let it run.

I use Active@ ISO Burner - http://www.ntfs.com/iso_burner_free.htm to burn my bootable CDs from .iso files.
