Quick update. Last night, I ran memtest and one of my ram sticks got over 4 million errors. I tried the other one in the same slot, no errors.

That means that the particular stick is corrupted and you need to replace it.

You think that would cause my programs to crash and for me to blue screen?

A corrupted memory stick can cause anything evil.

If there are no more issues, the machine should run smooth after replacing the corrupted RAM stick. For the time being, you use the single stick that is good.
