Code runs fine for awhile and then breaks in first "for" loop at random points between Counter2 = 150 and 450 and throws the error:

Unhandled exception at 0x009810ab in Sim HW5.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation writing location 0x00000000.

Any ideas why?
// Sim HW5.cpp : Defines the entry point for the console application.
//
 
#include "stdafx.h"
#include <iostream>
#include <vector>
#include <cmath>
 
using namespace std;
 
int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[])
{
	int Counter = 0;
	int Counter2;
	int Counter3;
 
	int n = 100000;
	
	int fj[20] = {0};
	
	double Divisor;
	double Z0 = 1;
	double Zi;
	double ZiMinusOne;
	double Ui;
	double TwoPowerThirtyOne;
	TwoPowerThirtyOne = pow((double)2,31);
	double v[100000];
 
	while (Counter < n+1){
		if (Counter == 0)
			ZiMinusOne = Z0;
		else
			ZiMinusOne = Zi;
 
		Divisor = (floor( 16807*ZiMinusOne/(TwoPowerThirtyOne-1)));
		Zi = 16807*ZiMinusOne - (Divisor) * (TwoPowerThirtyOne-1);
 
		Ui = Zi/(TwoPowerThirtyOne-1);
 
		v[Counter] = Zi;
 
		Counter++;
		}
 
 
breaks-->	for (Counter2 = 0; Counter2 < n-1; Counter2++){
		for (Counter3 = 0; Counter3 < 20; Counter3++){
			if (v[Counter2] >= Counter3*TwoPowerThirtyOne/20 && v[Counter2] <= (Counter3+1)*TwoPowerThirtyOne/20)
				fj[Counter2]++;
		}
	}
 
	for (Counter2 = 0; Counter2 < n-1; Counter2++)
		cout << "fj" << Counter2 << ": " << fj[Counter2] << endl;
 
	system ("PAUSE");
}

Well, the above is running fine here (compiles with VC8). You might want to initialize each and every variable thoroughly though, e.g.
int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[])
{
        int Counter = 0;
        int Counter2 = 0; // <--
        int Counter3 = 0; // <--
 
        int n = 100000;
        
        int fj[20] = {0};
        memset(fj,0,20 * sizeof(int)); // <--
        
        double Divisor = 1.0; // <--
        double Z0 = 1;
        double Zi = 0.0; // <--
        double ZiMinusOne = 0.0; // <--
        double Ui = 0.0; // <--
        double TwoPowerThirtyOne = 0.0; // <--
        TwoPowerThirtyOne = pow((double)2,31);
        double v[100000];
        memset(v,0,100000 * sizeof(double)); // <--
 
        while (Counter < n+1){
                if (Counter == 0)
                        ZiMinusOne = Z0;
                else
                        ZiMinusOne = Zi;
 
                Divisor = (floor( 16807*ZiMinusOne/(TwoPowerThirtyOne-1)));
                Zi = 16807*ZiMinusOne - (Divisor) * (TwoPowerThirtyOne-1);
 
                Ui = Zi/(TwoPowerThirtyOne-1);
 
                v[Counter] = Zi;
 
                Counter++;
                }
 
 
                for (Counter2 = 0; Counter2 < n-1; Counter2++){
                for (Counter3 = 0; Counter3 < 20; Counter3++){
                        if (v[Counter2] >= Counter3*TwoPowerThirtyOne/20 && v[Counter2] <= (Counter3+1)*TwoPowerThirtyOne/20)
                                fj[Counter2]++;
                }
        }
 
        for (Counter2 = 0; Counter2 < n-1; Counter2++)
                cout << "fj" << Counter2 << ": " << fj[Counter2] << endl;
 
        system ("PAUSE");
}
