Oh, to possibly address other issues, I tend to leave my computer on all of the time, and as for the spyware/trojan thing, I'm running Norton Internet Security 2008. I'm hoping that I can resolve this issue, it is an annoyance.
To test memory, go to the Control Panel and select Administrative Tools. Then select Memory Diagnostic Tool. The Tool is a "DOS" app. You can also run it without loading Windows:

Turn on computer and keep pressing F8 key till the boot menu appears. Use TAB key to select memory diagnostic tool at bottom of screen.

Cheers,
