Default Randon XP Pro Crash w/quick BSOD

Really if you guys can just recommend any type of program free or otherwise that can do a diagnostic of my hardware that'd be great. I'm thinking bad drivers, not sure.

Specs:

CPU: q6600 Quad
RAM: 4GB DD2-800 PC6400
Video: 8800GT 512mb
Mobo: Abit p35 pro
PSU: Ultra XFinity 38A 2x12V rails, 600W
HD: 250GB Seagate 7200.11
OS: Windows XP Pro SP2

I installed the drivers that came on the disks for Mobo, and video card I updated a while ago (months before this problem).

So the thing that happens exactly is randomly if I click something, drag something, start a program/open anything, it'll do a half second BSOD then reboot with the wallpaper doing the Active Desktop Recovery deal. This happens maybe once a week, but is persistent and therefore annoying, and I'm worried that I might be doing something worthwhile or playing a game when it crashes (which hasn't happened, but would suck). From what I've noticed, it has done it ONCE when I wasn't using the computer.

Any tips/advice is GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!

Well first turn off the Auto restart. Start>Right click My Computer>Properties>Advanced tab>Startup and recovery>Settings

Under system Failure turn off the Auto restart so you can see the BSOD error.

That way we can start diagnosing what the problems are.

Well if it does again you know where to find us and now how to stp the auto restart.

After it happens again if it does we will work to fix it.

Ok the rror code I got was 71A5DF52 which I found this post about: Frequent BSOD with Outpost and Firefox - Outpost Users Support Forum

So it was apparently Outpost Firewall. I uninstalled it, we'll see. It did take only 2 days to BSOD when I was AFK so we'll see.
