Thanks for the advice . So you would really recommend getting a new wireless adapter then? What exactly do you mean by memory corruption? Is there something wrong with my ram? I have run memtest86 like 4 times up to 13 passes with no errors. At this point would you recommend a clean install of windows a new wireless adapter and lose mccafee? Is windows firewall safe? Is there another software you might recommend for virus protection and stuff? Thanks for your help man!
