Sounds a bit like one of my customer's computers: random failures and glitches, most of which hackable with help from MS's knowledgebase (and various searches). The link between them seemed to be disk corruption, and after replacing the disk and finding similar problems during the reinstall/configure, at last did a memory test. (In my defense, page- and protection faults were - well, well within windows normal M.O.) Well, 3 or 4 dozy bits in one of the modules.
It might be worth running memtest on that machine. One of my maxims is "any symptom could be caused by memory" - it is suprising how they hide at times!
The only dumb question is a question not asked.
The only dumb answer is an answer not given.
