Once they errored the error windows would keeping showing up until the server ran out of RAM and froze. I am now loading these programs in the normal administrator mode and nothing has crashed my server since I've done that.

No, it is not normal for *any* application to be run in other than
normal user mode (or administrator mode if there are special
circumstances). Likely that the programmers had some reason fro doing
this but you would have to check with them. Highly suspect, though.

BTW, sounds like this really has nothing specific to do with Firebird or
databases. That just happens to be the DBMS the application uses.
