With that said, then here is info on a memory test program which many use.

I prefer to use the 3rd party tool rather than the one that is built in to Windows. One of the reasons for this is that the alternative has a smaller footprint and is independant of the OS.

Agreed. And it's much much faster to do several complete tests.
