Windows 7: RecEnv.exe Application Error

No I haven't cracked open the case yet, I just ordered the 8GB replacement RAM yesterday. I figured for $67 I went from 1600MHz to 1833MHz on the RAM and Corsair was specifically tested on my MOBO and CPU, and recommended. I'll just call it an upgrade and move on.

"I tried fixing this by inserting the System Repair disk, and the System OS disk, on a reboot"
=> What the heck did you do exactly. Because i think you made things even worse(?)

I inserted the System Repair disk after being prompted to do so when I received a "Windows Failed to Boot" error message. Then I inserted the System OS disk and selected "Repair Windows 7" thinking that this would load the missing DLL file that came up in the previously-listed error message. Both failed to do anything and I received brief error messages with a reference to a string of characters. On a few occasions, there was a BSOD that stated that in order to protect the system, Windows was shut down. This message also referenced a memory problem.

If I just do as you suggested and load up my system image from two week ago, I should be fine, yes?

So system repair disk or win7 installation dvd also crashes? Definitely a memory error.
You have 2 4GB sticks in pc now? Is it a laptop or desktop?

I am running home-built, dual-boot machine (Windows 7 on HD#1, and XPSP3 on HD#2). I use the Windows Boot Manager to decide which OS to boot into, and Win 7 is the default. MOBO is an ASUSP8P67 Deluxe, CPU is the i5-2500K (overclocked to 4.0GHZ) and the RAM is G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 SDRAM 1600 (PC3 12800). It has been stable for more than a year now with no worries.
So it's a desktop. Did you try to NOT overclock it!! Do a memtest86 afterwards.

Also best thing to do now is power off, open the case and unplug the faulty 4GB memory

It's a desktop with 2 x 4GB sticks (8GB total RAM). I even inserted the sticks in the recommended order per the ASUS P8P67 Deluxe MOBO manual. Once I test the RAM in XP, and if they check out OK, do you think that will solve my issues?

I'll try that - set the system back to the default settings (I overclocked the CPU from 3.3GHZ to 4.0GHz). Originally the MOBO would only recognize the RAM as 1333MHZ, when it was actually 1600MHZ. I fixed this in the BIOS a while ago, and it was registering as 1600MHZ. Will I do any harm to my system by continuing to boot into XP?

Not in XP ... why and how? Use memtest86 instead

When said I will test the RAM in XP I misspoke, I will test using Memtest86+ by booting into the ISO image that I burned to a CD-ROM. Should the RAM have zero errors, or is there a number of errors that would still be considered acceptable? So, I am not going to cause any damage to my system by just booting into XP?

No errors are acceptable!

Booting in winxp doesn't cause any errors I assume. It only uses the lower 4GB's of memory.

Don't overclock!
