    ok i need to post this quick before my computer restarts again because this is the third time i've tried. i recently installed a new motherboard after my old one died on me. ever since i reformatted and reinstalled windows xp pro programs i am running have had errors and needed to close for no apparent reason, including windows explorer. i have all the windows updates, adaware and spybot are clean, i cant finish a virus scan without it restarting but i reformatted yesterday and stuff so i doubt its a virus. my system configuration is listed below. any ideas?
