Crashes and errors

My PC running windows xp, AMD Athlon 2600+ has recently started crashing or hanging. It usually happens on the same programs, but occasionally at random. The only recent addition is Mcafee internet suite, although when this is disabled it doesn't improve things. How can I diagnose a cause, whether hardware or software?

One of the errors logged:
Error code 100000d1, parameter1 0000a45c, parameter2 00000002, parameter3 00000001, parameter4 ee1bda1f.

Uninstall McAfee and see if it still happens

Are you satisfied that you are virus and malware free? That would be my first check.

sorry, on reflection my last post sounds a bit daft, I mean are you satisfied that McAfee has done its job OK?

Uninstalled McAfee, still no change. No viruses found.
