NT does safeguard against more types of memory problems and protects
individual applications from crashing better than Win95 does, but it STILL
does crash and is more resource hungry than Win95.
I don't believe that NT can circumvent division overflows either, it does
have a better protection against hardware failures, but it is just better,
not perfect or anywhere close to it :)
I would advise to you to have your new hardware replaced, still under
warranty I hope :-)
since you can prove that it fails system testing.
