Check your graphic-card drivers. Try to find newer ones. Maybe they cause some problems with GDI on Win. Try to email tech-support of your graphicscard-company. They always deal with the prob.

How much video memory do you have?  It could be a part of a slowlyness problem.

Slow performance is sometimes due to the graphics drivers, but it doesn't seem to be that since you've gotten the newest drivers. Photoshop can never have too much RAM - 16 Mb of RAM is cutting it close - 32 to 64 Megabytes of RAM is usually sufficient for pretty smooth performance. If you're specifying virtual memory - set the size higher, if it's on Auto, then don't touch it. Make sure all the caches are turned all the way up - make sure the Graphics Acceleration is turned all the way up, as well. You'll find all of this by going to the Control Panel, then to System, then clicking on the Performance tab. Also make sure there are no drives using MS-DOS compatibility. If so, submit another question in the appropriate forum.
About the program crashing... that sounds more like either a memory conflict, or just a glitch in the program. Sometimes you can't fix this, but it's plausible to try to shut down EVERY program that's running except for Explorer and Systray by hitting Ctrl-Alt-Del and shutting things down one-by-one until that's all that's left and then running Photoshop. Norton programs take up a lot of memory and can cause conflicts like that. Also, if you're running VirusScan, shut that down, too. Hope this helps.

You mentioned that when you use the eraser tool on a layer it crashes the program.
Photoshop has a a revert feature with the eraser tool that allows you to "erase" the image back to the original. This requires a large swap area on your hard drive.  You mentioned an 8.6GB hard drive.  Plenty big, but how is it partitioned?  If your Photoshop temp folder is pointing to a partition that has no space left the that's your problem.  Has nothing to do with video drivers.
However, I can only speculate on what info you have given.  If you could provide more detailed information like OS, video card manufacuer, verison of PS you are using, etc I could be of better assistance.
