I ran memtest and let it cycle a couple of times, it found no errors.
So some programs will not run properly in safe mode either? Then it may be a hardware issue. Let's start with the obvious first steps:
1) To check the ram, download memtest (http://www.memtest.org/). Burn it to a cd using a dedicated .iso burning utility (http://www.petri.co.il/how_to_write_iso_files_to_cd.htm), make sure the cd drive is at the top of the boot order in bios, then boot to the newly created cd and run the utility.
I did this. It took quite a long time, about 3 hours.
2) Boot to the recovery console and run chkdsk /r
I used CPU-Z to find my system information. It said I have a Dell Motherboard, model OWG860, BIOS version 2.4.0. Was a little odd, as Googling found no model OWG860 (there is a OWG864, which I assume is the correct one). It appears that this is the most up to date BIOS version.
3) Check for a bios update
