I am getting this above message on every single program I run. This seems to occur after, roughly, running the computer for a day or so. The only way to fix it, is to restart the computer and, most times, I am forced to do a hard boot. I have already tried searching for an answer and nothing seems to work. One of the first things I have tried was sfrc /scannow, which returned that no files were corrupted. I have also ran MemTest86+ in order to see if it was my memory and there seemed to be no issues there as well. Due to this, I am at a loss and any help would be very much appreciated.

Also, you can find a filtered Application Error text log here: Application Error Log. It is everything related to all application posts made to the event viewer within the last hour from the time I was last forced to restart.

If you need anything else, please don't hesitate to ask as I desperately need a fix for this.

could be an application program problem. What programs are you running for a day or so?

Minecraft via MultiMC and Firefox (and, on occasion, Windows Explorer). In the Background is Weather Channel App, Norton 360, Digital Persona Personal, and normal windows stuff.

EDIT: Also, for some reason, whenever I check my Task Manager, I've noticed there is always like 4-8 processes for Chrome running, even when I don't have chrome open. They seem to open on start-up and chrome is disabled in my start-up list.

If you don't use Chrome, uninstall it. Could be an memory leak problem on one of those app.
