I will need some more information
If it is a name brand system:
Make and Model
Age of the computer
Hard Drive Size, How much free space
If it is custom then I will need the following:
The CPU brand and model
The Motherboard brand and model
Ram amount and speed
Cd\Dvd rom interface IDE/ SATA
Hard Drive size and free space
Any cards in PCI slots
Any software installed\updated and driver updates done just before problem started
All this will help in determining a course of action to best correct the problem you are experiencing.

The codes I get on the blue screen are
ox0000008e, 0xc000005, 0x804d8202, 0xf8c435c4, 0x00000000
Also when I try to unistall other programs I get a stream program request, which slows the computer up more. The previous owners nephews installed programs that is taking up massive space

Do you have a genuine windows xp that is the same that is installed on the system?
If so you could format the system and take it back to a simple xp
Without the make and model I can't be certain
Post the information along with the information requested here and we will proceed from there.

The c0000005 parameter indicates that this was a problem that occurred while accessing memory.
From the link above, this can be a hardware or driver problem - with (IMO) a BIOS problem following that.
Since the error was made in accessing memory, this doesn't mean that the memory is bad. But it doesn't hurt to test it just in case.
Try this free memory test: http://www.memtest86.com/ Follow the directions to create a bootable disk and then boot from it. Let the test run for a minimum of 3 passes (overnight is better). If it starts spitting out errors, you can stop the test immediately.
Do you have any more info about the viewmgr error? That may help to point us towards the source of the errors.

Yea, it might be a memory problem.
Go here to download memtest. Go to Download (Pre-built and ISOs)
Get the file that is named Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)
It should be under v.2.11
Unzip the file once you download it. You should have a .iso file in the unzipped directory.
Go here and download Burncdcc. Open up the .iso file that you unzipped earlier with Burncdcc. Burn a CD using this program (burn at a slow speed (1X))
Now you should have a bootable CD that has memtest on it. This program tests your RAM and ensures it is in good condition. Once you have the CD, you should take out all sticks of RAM from your computer except one.
Boot from the disc, and run the memory test for at least 7 passes.
After this test passed or failed, try the other stick of RAM (if there is another).
Run this test overnight if you want to.
Read this if you have a notebook.
Watch this video to remove RAM on a desktop.
Above are some detailed instructions
I think it is suggested to run it for 7 passes but usasma says 3. You should just do the test long enough to make sure that no errors would be found; run overnight. You may want to test it with both sticks of RAM first, and if there are errors, then test the RAM sticks one at a time.
