Hi all, I'm not sure if this is the right forum but here goes.
Everything on my system keeps crashing, no matter what i'm running it will crash. I can't use a web browser for more than an hour, however an hour is good - it generally crashes several times an hour. I have tried Firefox, Chrome and IE but all have the same outcome. I can't play games for more than a short time without them crashing either.
I thought it might be a memory problem but have run Memtest and Windiag with no error messages (over 2 hours of passes for each), I have run Malwarebytes, SUPERantiSpyware and Avira Antivir and none of them come up with any malware - tried GMER but this crashes.
It's taken nearly 2 days to manage to get a full run on each of the Anti-malware programs! The system doesn't crash, just the applications.

System as follows:

System Information
Time of this report: 12/2/2010, 12:11:17
Machine name: SOCA
Operating System: Windows XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 2 (2600.xpsp_sp2_gdr.090804-1412)
Language: English (Regional Setting: English)
System Manufacturer: ECS
System Model: K7S5A
BIOS: Version 1.00
Processor: AMD Athlon™ Processor, MMX, 3DNow, ~1.2GHz
Memory: 384MB RAM
Page File: 375MB used, 543MB available
Windows Dir: C:\WINDOWS

The only thing I can think is that the PSU I am using it not the best - I have to lower the FSB of my processor to keep the system stable.

I have attached a Hijack This log.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
