Default windows messin wid me

ok, I'm running linux while posting this. I don't trust my other system. *deep sigh* ok, here we go. on my shuttle I am running a 1.75GHz AMD Athlon with 512meg ram (prolly kingston or some generic). I have a seagate 60gb HDD in that system. ok, the heart of the problem. windows freezes up frequently, my gf claims that it restarts randomly (I myself have NEVER seen that happen) the internet messes up after a while (I posted on this one before but nobody answered. I reinstalled drivers and it helped... for a short period of time) btw, just for the record, she will never be around my new build. she has a tendancy to break computers really fast. one with this... she downloaded almost to the max capacity of the HDD, but I don't know if that's why the computer runs like it came from 1990. so my question... is the HDD capacity why I am having problems with it?

If the hard drive is full, it will definitely slow down the computer. Not sure if that will make it crash or not.

Go run a test on the ram to see if there are any errors on it.

ok this may sound stupid, but do I need a program to do that? I know the puter does a memtest at the startup but is that good enough for it?
