Do you get any information in the Problem Reports and Solutions tool when
this happens? This should indicate that something is using memory badly.
Windows itself should be fine here - there were several million tests run -
but there are a lot of third parties that aren't DEP aware yet -- I would
strongly suspect that one of those is doing bad things. But any data you
have here may further narrow the problem down, so that's the first great
step forward. =)
Speaking for myself only.
for some helpful WMP info.
