Post 3+ Months Ago

Hello all and thank you in advance for any and all help I recieve. Heres my problem. My comp about a month ago started to lock up on me for no reason. First it was only once in awhile, now its 2 or 3 times a day.
I have webroot spy sweeper and AVG 7.5 neaither of which have detected anything. I have gone to sites like Pcpitstop.com and did a check on system and still nothing shows up being wrong. But again my comp locks up for no reason. The only way to get it back up is to hard boot it, I pull the plug out of the processer and waita few minutes and plug it back in. Now the last few times while its loading and checking the memory is has said Memory test fail, then continues on loading up windows XP pro. I have a custom built system AMD Athlon XP pro with 1.47GHz amd 512 mb ram.
Can anyone give me ideas of what to do before I dump whole system?

ok thank you, the memory test came back good.
I went to "My Computer" and right clicked then went to "Manage" there in the applications running I had alot or errors and warning symb.
After looking at them there all the same thing. They say "MsiInstaller" failed. When I do a serch on it for windows help it says theres no help for it?
WHat is it and what can I do?
