Angry memtest86+

Firstly only found memtest86!
Which I have run and have umpteen more problems, as it is completely unfriendly to use for a non techie.
It did seem after a short while to indicate 88 errors?!?
How long does it need to run?
How do i know what the errors are and what is causing them?
Does it provide some form of output, that can be forwarded?
i.e. How do i prove to my PC supplier that the memory is faulty?

My pc randomly restarts, when in anyprogam, AdawareSE, spider solitaire, and pc restarts, and then once i'm back onto windows, i get a ' your system has recovered from a serious error' and then when i click on it to see the details i get....blah, blah memory dump etc
Also, shutdown is inconsisitent in its length of time yo complete.
Also, 99.9% of startups i get 'your system has recovered from a serious error'

Am running winXP, without SP1&2 (currently dowmloading SP2). Using Norton AV&IS, AdawareSE and Spybot S&D.

Do I need more adware/spyware detection software?
How do I know which items to disbale in msconfig/startup?

Any help/assistance will be appreciated.
