Hmm seems not much RAM for running a64bit Windows an I think it might be worth this
MEMTEST
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/105647-ram-test-memtest86.htmlthis one you will need to make a bootable disk set the BIOS to optical (or USB if preferred) boot the machine and let it run for at LEAST 8 passesunless the errors come up straight away. Takes a fair time to complete and some leave it running overnight.
If you do get errors and have more than one stick then you will need to test each one separately and maybe even in the separate slots.
In the pic errors after just one pass so you must run at least 8 passes any less is useless.

Now if this doesn't fix the problem Joseph I still think a memtest would be worth the effort and it would at very least eliminate that issue.

Let us know how it goes if you want any more info on the disassembly of that machine let me know.

Now test the HD.

Have you considered reinstalling 32 bit sticking with these steps to assure a perfect install? Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

It might actually save time if the hardware tests good.

How was it installed? Did you follow those steps?

Can you System Restore back to when it was running good?

Joseph mate the drive like anything ie a car can be brand new and still go off the rails - I am not saying it has but don't be fooled by it being new. Personally I have had a fair bit of trouble with WD and prefer Seagate stuff. Actually if you could afford it an SSD is the best thing to have as there are many moving parts inside a spinner that can go wrong, whereas the SSD is pretty well less susceptible to direct impacts and getting too close to strong magnetic fields even thought they do have rare earth magnets inside them for the actuation arm mechanism etc.

But back on track I think what Greg said re the restore is still worth a shot and if you do run a test on the drive you can use Seatools or the WD test stuff for looking at the partitions and data based stuff like that and also do a physical surface test with Partition Wizard it looks at the surface of the platters and to some extent the read / write actuating arms and heads.
