If you had problems with unexpected OS crashes on Athlons using  
Gromacs < 3.1.4, this was due to a hardware bug in the SSE  
implementation in some AMD processors (It took them over a year to  
acknowledge it was their fault...) that I've since worked around. All  
newer AMD CPUs should also have the bug fixed.

I might try to recompile 3.3.1 for Windows if I have time, but it  
will still be command-line only.
