Personally I think it's pointing towards your hdd,have you done a diagnostics on it yet as you may have 'bad sectors' on the drive and perhaps a std format is not picking them up. As yoshter said download a low level formatting utility from IBM Drive Fitness Test Utility
pretty sure this will work with non IBM drives and test it out before low level formatting if it still comes through the test with no problems then reinstall os with No Applications at all and test it for a few days if it still throws up a problem go ahead and do the low level format and then reinstall again.

Better include me in your statement as well then BlackDiamond junior !!!
