I have a computer running Windows 2000. System will crash shortly after boot up. Sometimes it will not crash for hours assuming you do not try to run a media player or get on internet. I have run MEMTEST86, Superantispyware, Malwarebytes, CCleaner, CWShredder, Spybot and Hijack this (only strange entry there is "HKLM\..\Run:[]e" but this has been there for years). I took out nic card, optical drives, changed memory and power supply. I also ran chkdsk /r. Nothing shows in device manager. Computer runs in Safe mode without problem. This is and older computer with a AMD Athlon XP, 1333mhz 1500+, 2 gig memory. Any thoughts. Thanks

When it crash doesn't show any errors on the Event Viewer or generate memory dumps?
