Programs dying for no apparent reason.

Not sure if this is the right place for this but, as title says, my programs keep dying. Im sitting here happily playing/browzing/watching/editing and BAM! A program dies. It gives me the XP version of 'this program has performed and illegal operation', with the 'send an error message' to make M$ look more caring. Sometimes its the program im using, other just ones that need to run in the background (Belkin wireless utility for example).

Ive run memtests tests 5 and 7, and apparently my ram in ok. Any ideas?

Have you checked your CPU temp and PSU rail output voltages?

Try replacing your IDE or SATA cable for your HDD. Had similar probs with an AXP rig of mine.

It could also be if you're overclocking your PCI bus isn't locked and your SATA/ATA controller is being run over spec.

I pretty much know a format would solve it. disableing ewido gaurd seams to have helped too. Ill uninstall it in a sec. Voltages are ok (taken from speedfan), 3.3 rail a little high but nothing too bad. Ill have a go at removing ewido.

you cannot trust those reported V values as they often isnt correct and sometimes way off.

Yeah. Well, +0.15v or -0.15v you're OK so I guess you're within a safe range.
