Program crashes without Exception

Hi Experts!  I have a program that crashes in both debug and release builds.  When debugging using VS 2008, I get the message "VSHost32.exe has stopped working."  In release mode, I get "MyProgram has stopped working."  Something very bad is happening and I don't know where to start fixing this.  I have code that capture unhanded exceptions, but it isn't getting triggered.  Anyways, the debugger would stop at the exception.  In this case, my program just flat out crashes.  Please help!

note that when I press "Debug" when the Release build crashes, I get the following message:
This may be due to a corruption of the heap, which indicates a bug in MyProgram.exe or any of the DLLs it has loaded.

Since you cant figure by it throwing an exception, some other options are:
   Debug via VS and put in breaks, see if the breaks ever even get hit or follow thru until it stops
   If console, but in some debug.writes/console.writes or if form application, try posting in some msg boxes.

Best of luck
