I tried some of the various options, like the memtest; typesetting with pdflatex, bibtex, pdflatex, pdflatex; and such.
Other programs started to crash randomly, adn TS would crash on more processes than just bibtex/biber. SO I started to roll back changes made recently. It appears (so far) that Sophos anti-virus software (which I tried on the advice of Lifehacker) may have been the cause of my problems. I'll let all know if that doesn't turn out to be the case, but so far so good.
Thanks to all for your suggestions.
