Most of the times if more than one program gets error messages and close down, it is memory errors that are causing the problem. If you can try downloading Memtest86 and run it to see if the memory is the problem. Please read the memtest webpage carefully to use the program correctly.
Memtest does not need your computer operating system to be running to work. It runs off a floppy disk or a bootable cdrom you make. It is a stand alone program.
Please post your results here. Also any information you can give us on your computer would be helpful.

May I suggest, that if a memory stick it acting up, all sorts of odd-ball probs will occur, that make no sense at all...not just a couple progs breaking up and stopping...but I am open to correction...
Suggest that we look at a fast mem-cleaner first, then check and enlarge the caches...check to see what the size of the pagefile.sys file is, and if it is fast approaching 1GB, then clean it out, on reboot, if it is not set to do so already.
Try not to have more than what is absolutely necessary running in the back ground at any one time...and whatever progs you do have running, keep the resource demand low...progs that take whomping big gulps of resources are going to have to get them from somewhere and the progs you are running may, themselves be the culprit...
