Seems like it might be possible that your processor is overheating. How long does it run before it usually crashes? Run time errors usually indicate that you have some sort of program conflict, such as something running in the background that doesn't play well with a program you're trying to run. Does this happen more often with one program than others?

Have you ever opened your computer? Do you feel confident doing so? It might not hurt to check your fans - power supply fan, processor fan, any other case fan, to see that they're all working correctly.

It would help if you could tell us what your operating system is, and any specific error messages.

Once you reformat and reload your operating system, you must also remember to install all the patches, and all the applications over again, with all their updates. You may, for example, neeed to install the latest version of JavaRuntime environment rather than the presumably older version you might have now.
Failure to do these things may be one cause of your current problems.

ERROR:OE:0187:BFF8E64B

refers to buffers in outlook express (mail carrier, default on me )

could be causing some problems but i agree with jg...check ports, coms, irqs in device manager. If you added anything to the me system (axtra mem, soundcards, etc, it most likely is overheating processor. That was my previous system on hp pavilion and i ended up switching to xp just to get rid of the headaches
