Every graphics program crashes WXP guest operating system

I have tried to use Irfanview, Picasa, Adobe Photoshop Album in a system with SUSE Linux 10.1 as host and WXP as guest. Every one of these programs causes the guest operating system to terminate after a short period of use with a fleeting message from Windows to the effect that the operating system has detected a problem which could affect the integrity of the system and is forcing a shutdown. The guest op system then does a cold reboot.

All of the above programs work well in the real world.

I have looked at some of the logs and nothing jumps out as identifying the source of the problem but that's hardly surprising as I really don't know what I'm looking for.

Could you give me a reproducable way that crashes your guest with Ifranview? I've installed and played with it a bit and it seems to work well.

I have added 384M of memory to the 512M already on my system and now find that Irfanview works. Haven't tried the other programs and probably won't since I can't seem to get my webcam working. Am trying VMware to see if it's any better.
