    Memtest can check for errors in your ram.

    could try running "sfc /scannow" at the command prompt

    Although I would strongly recommend SP2, it contains a huge number of security fixes and other updates and the vast majority of users (particularly on this forum) have had no problems with it. Certainly wasn't the amount of problems with it that SP1 had! :)
