I have an issue that I;ve never had before. I been dealing with it for a while now/.

When I open certain folders with large files in it. The folder window will just close every time I even try to view it.

Also. sometimes when I;m running certain programs, the entire computer will just restart.

Hello OM20,

1. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> System (Windows+Pause works, too)
2. Go to Advanced
3. Under the Startup and Recovery section, click Settings...
4. Under System Failure un-check "Automatically restart"

Now when the problems occurs the system will produce an error message instead of restarting. This will give us some detail as to what is happening.

When the memory dump occurs? You should have some technical info with it (filename, stop code,etc). This is the info that is needed to determine the problem. Maybe you could upload the mini dump file from event viewer.

Here are to programs that you can use in order to test your memory to see if there is a problem with your memory.
