i am at the warriors guild in the catacombs looking for the cyclops' eyeball. I saved the game and installed the patch. When i loaded the game after a couple of minutes a message came up and turned of the game. I decided to re install the game and patch but its still the same.

If you start a new game and run around a bit, does the game crash within the same 3 minute time-frame? Does loading your latest save and leaving the warrior's guild to explore outside make any difference to when or if it crashes?
Since your other save is no longer crashing on load (as in your other post) it is probably an issue with the game itself, but duplicating the crash in a new game would confirm that.

Check out the topic Troubleshooting Tips (& manual install procedure).

For the slash4.dll error message, a couple people have had that problem when going through doorways, which lowering (or disabling) hardware sound acceleration would fix (click Start | Run, type in dxdiag and hit Enter, then switch to the sound tab).

Enough disk space free ? Defragmented ? Enough RAM space free ? How many background programs or processess running ?

Defragment means the computer rearranges files on the hard drive so they are in continuous sections. When writing files the computer just uses the first available space, so it can write part of the file, then run out of space and need to move to a different section of the disk to continue. Generally defragmenting the hard drive just improves performance a bit, but some people have found that it clears up various weird glitches.
Right click on the hard drive in Windows Explorer, select Properties, switch to the Tools tab, and hit the defragment button (might be slightly different in XP).

Many programs that add themselves to the task try beside the clock do not actually need to be there, and can interfere with resource intensive programs, such as games. Unnecessary programs include email or IM clients, web browsers, wallpaper changers, MS Office quick search indexing 'feature' and multimedia players. The real-time scans of anti-virus programs can be particularly problematic. Usually right clicking on these icons will give you the option to exit, change the startup options or temporarily disable the program.
Lady_Rain describes how to use the startup manager in Spybot in this topic, to help free up resources and reduce conflicts.
