Linux crashing

I have problem with linux mashine crashing form time to time.
I have RedHat 7.0 installed not so long ago. I am useing KDE desktop. First I
login at console and then type startx. When I logout from KDE it sometime just
freeze. And this is what I see at console screen:

waitinf for X server to shutdown

Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer derefenceat virtualaddress 00000000
current->tss.cr3 = 00101000, %cr3 = 00101000

Aiee, killing interupt handler
Kernel panic: Attempted to kill the idle task!
In swapper task - not syncing

IStead of dashess there are hex number.
After this message coputer freeze and do not accept ALT+CTRL+DEL
When I reboot, it sometimes run OK but sometimes at boot time ask me to enter
root password and run fsck without -a or -p swich. After this done it reboot

When this started I have reinstalled whole linux but with no good result. It
continues after that.
I do not know if this problem is because of mailing system, as I have problem
with reading mail too. I am useing Kmail and Kppp for fetching mail. When I
chek mail I see windows saying it is downloadin let say 10 messages, but I can
read only few or them, not all. And when this happend there is allways one
emoty message with emty From: field and Subject: field and body text.

I have noticed that when it start deamons and it is turn for KUDZU program
there is an error
KUDZU line 60: 154 segmentation fault.

Number 154 change from 149 to cca 157.

What can be wrong?
