my Windows 7 computer just randomly shut down

Dell / Studio 1569
October 19, 2010 at 17:46:23
Specs: Windows 7, 4.o GB
I just had the hard drive replaced a couple weeks ago; it previously shut down randomly or I got the blue screen a few times before it shut down permanently.
Today I reinstalled Quicken and I had it open but not active at the time. Otherwise until today I have not had a problem. Is there a conflict with Windows 7 and Quicken?

What version of Quicken? Older versions will not run in Win 7.

get task manager running and track your physical memory usage and your commit memory usage. Commit are metered in Resource Monitor. look for max out of either or both. If these number are high percentage wise or increasing be sure your virtual memory has been pushed to a number higher than your default setup.

If a memory leak (ever increasing usage despite machine sitting idle) the only reactive measure I have found so far is to pushing virtual to a number beyond what you need for the duration of time between your normal restarts. I'm still looking for a way to locate and address the source of a memory leak

My machine has 8G RAMM and locks up for just leaving it idle for 4-8 hours and my commit charge memory has hit 56/56 GB. I just pushed my virtual up to 100GB.
