It's not gonna fix anything. It'll just check, if your RAM is OK.
You need to get 4-5 passes.
The best option - leave it overnight.

You downloaded memtest86+-1.70.iso.zip, unzipped it, burned .iso file to the CD, and you booted from it, right?

You should be seeing screen like this:

What picture is not working?
From my last reply?
I see it here.
Anyway, it looks like you did the right thing, so I'm not sure what you mean by:

The thing is downloading Windows XP on my computer.

Now, I'm totally lost.
Were you able to boot all the way to Windows, or what?
