Did you run virus checks that Arc mentioned earlier? MSE, TDSSkiller, eset online scanner? Please do in case you haven't.

Please run these tests and report back the results

1. SFC /scannow to check windows for corruption - SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
2. Disk check for errors on the hard drive - Disk Check
3. Troubleshoot applications by a clean boot - Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup
4. Memtest86+ paying close attention to part 3 - RAM - Test with Memtest86+
5. Hard drive test from HDD mfg website - Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure

I also recommend you peruse these links, take your time to do so

I have done items #1 and #2 without adverse results. I have "cleaned" the startup and will have to wait for some time to determine any effect due to the random nature of my problem.

Just wanted to post another follow-up, no resets at all for at least three weeks! I am tempted to call it good! Thanks for all your help.
