Alternative programs to Memtest?

I am pretty sure something is wrong with my memory, I need a program to test it. I don't know how to install Memtest though. I rather use a program that you can actually install through windows. Thanks.

  1. Memtest86+ is the best and easy to use.
    Download a bootable iso image
    Burn the iso to disc
    Boot from the cd
    test one stick at a time

    CDMemtest86+ is directly executable by any modern x86 compatible machine,
    by writing the iso to a CD one can boot from the CD to run memtest.

    Simply download the appropriate package, the Download - Pre-Compiled
    Bootable ISO (.gz) for Linux users and the Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO
    (.zip) for Windows users.

    For Windows, unzip the package into a directory like C:\memtest. You will
    now see a file called memtest86+-1.xx.iso in this directory. You will
    need to burn this file to a CD with a CD recording program. Do note
    however that you should not make a regular data CD on which you for
    instance write your text documents and holiday photographs. Instead the
    iso file is a so called image of a CD, it is a direct copy of a CD. Your
    CD recording program will most likely have a feature called burn image or
    something to that effect which you should use to burn the CD. Do NOT under
    any circumstances select to create a bootable CD. The memtest ISO image is
    already bootable. You need NOT create a new CD, you need to burn a CD
    image. Usually you can simply double click the iso file in the Windows
    explorer which will start your CD burning application and prompt you to
    burn the CD.

    For unix, unzip the package into your home directory. and execute
    'cdrecord dev=<your burner> ~/memtest86+-1.xx.iso' where you replace
    <your burner> with the scsi address of your CD burner and replace 1.xx
    with the correct version number of the memtest86+ you downloaded.

    When the burning is completed your drive will most likely have ejected the
    CD and you should have a bootable memtest86+ CD. To run the test directly
    reinsert the CD and reboot your machine.

    Your machine should now boot from the CD, display the word Loading
    folowed by a series of periods and then show a screen much like the
    screenshots on the memtest86+ web page. The test is automatically
