Have you recently installed any new hardware or drivers? If so, that might be causing your problem, and you should try rolling back the drivers. If not, you might want to test your RAM with something like MemTest to see if it is corrupt.

Which MemTest did you use? I generally use the one found here: http://hcidesign.com/memtest/, it doesn't require you to put it on a disk. If it stops at 0%, try telling it to allocate less RAM. If it just stops without any error dialogs, that probably just means you're telling it to allocate more RAM than than Windows can provide without going to the swapfile.

Drivers, faulty program, virus, ram, mobo, and cpu are all possibilities. Make sure to update all your drivers, and get the newest revision of directx. Disable any extra programs you have running in the background. Go to run, and type "sfc /scannow" to scan for pooched dll's.

The double programs start could be something simple like clicking too many times, or it could be a virus which injects itself into the reserved memory and takes over the duplicate, which could make them related but too early to tell. Make sure you update your antivirus and do a full scan, preferably from safemode first.
