Programs radomly close without warning

Hey Guys,

I have a weird problem, lately when i run more than two programs at once, one program will just shut down without warning or that error box will appear, e.g if im running nero, itunes and chrome, after a while 1 of the them will shut down without warning and because theres no warning nothing appears in event viewer

when i do get an error report, it just says something like:

Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      Application Error

 i have a quad core pc with 3 gig of ram so i dont think im putting too much pressure on the system. I ran antivirus and anti spyware programs with no luck. Also the temp never reaches over 46 so i dont think its over heating

Any suggestion

Thanking u in advance

Hi Ken,

It'd be worth running a RAM test over the machine for a start. Download the ISO from http://www.memtest.org/, boot from it and let it run overnight to do a comprehensive memory test. This will indicate if data corruption is occurring during memory read/writes. If it fails, try removing memory modules one by one to see which it is (errors can also indicate faulty mainboard/cpu).

Cheers,
Simeon

Hi Simeon,

Thanks for the reply, ya i think its the ram alright because after i removed a recently bought stick of ram the problem seemed to stop. Its a bit disappointing though as the manufacturer told me it would be 100% compatible with my board
