    Is this problem isolated to any particular programs, if so, what programs are they and where did you get them from, genuine discs or downloaded torrents?

    If this happens radomly with all programs then you may have a Malware infection, run this and see if it finds anything.

    This may also be a sign of a failing hard drive, faulty memory or a problem with your graphics card.
