Get a proggie called Memtest and test the memory modules. I had a similar problem and it turned out to be a dud memory module.Memtest identified the problem and swapping modules around isolated the dud module.

Although unlikely, be sure you check for viruses as well. I once had one which exhibited that type of behaviour.

I found this same issue a few days ago. A quick search and browse on http://www.microsoft.com/support in the Knowledge Base while choosing "games" as the application and "fs2002" as the only keyword, I found this answer:http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...kb;en-us;315589NOTE: This forum software breaks URLs with semi-colons in them no matter what code I seem to try using. Please copy and paste the URL text.Basically, uninstall, hunt down any copies of the executable, delete them, reboot, reinstall.This was a total pain and waste another 30-40 minutes, but it has been running smoothly for days now.
