    A quickie reply is that 'IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL' can be the result of a
    hardware problem, or a software (usually driver) problem.
    Your "(about 10 - 20 minutes, can be 5 minutes)" statement seems to indicate
    that there likely is a hardware heat related problem.
    Is the processor cooling fan running properly?
    How about the Video card cooling fan?
    Power supply fan? (usually not involved, but since you are poking around--)
    Case fan(s)?
    Check the inside of the P/C for excessive dust buildup.
    Do you have any plug in I/O cards other than the video card?

    Thanks Chuck For Your Really Quick Reply,

    I'm not exactly sure how I did it but now programs in Vista are working
    after hours but much appreciated for your help. I was just running
    windows in safe mode for a long time, then went back to the normal mode
    and it was working. I had tried starting my computer in safe mode before
    but not for a very long time. Maybe you have to start it in safe mode
    and then use 1-click maintence, a program part of Tuneup Utilites
    because thats what I did.

    Oh by the way also the Blue Screen error has been coming up for a while
    now which is also good (this stoped at the same time as my other
    problem). I shoyld have mentioned the important part though that there
    are some numbers at the bottem of the Blue Screen like '0x0000000a'
    something like that and i find out that this is a driver problem. This
    was a few days ago and i figured out that the numbers are a dirver
    issue. I screwed around with my keyboard drivers (beacause it had a
    caution sign on it) and stuffed it up. Got it back after some effort but
    dont want to screw with it again. But thanks for you quick reply again
    Chuck.

    :):):):) THANKS CHUCK - YOU RULE BRO
