Photoshop 7 Crashes when trying to Save files (usually Tiffs) and Windows Explorer is Crashing when trying to View some files (usually those worked on in Photoshop)

Hi,  I`m having great difficulty with my XP Home based PC(PC2700 GEForce Ti4600 80Gig) though there is no absolute pattern i can identify, quite a lot of the time, windows browser just crashes on trying to view some files, and when using Photoshop 7, and trying to either save some files as Tiffs or jpegs (tho mostly Tiffs) it Crashes !!
Whats Happening ? Is their a Massive conflict going on between Microsoft and Adobe ?
Whatevers  going on is driving me Insane as I need to use both Windows Browser, and Photoshop.
Please can anyone shed any light into what may be wrong, in simple or plain language that is suitable for a novice to grasp !!
Many thanks in advance for much needed help,
Jacobiskit.

Not sure if this helps but do you have the ability to set the cache for PS7 onto another hard drive? That helped performance on my machine dramatically.

Other possibilities could be resolution perhaps or which program is associated with TIFFs, etc.

Thanks for your reply BeneratMellon, I have configured the PS7 Cache to be a seperate HD from the Programme tho this doesnt seem to be at the core of my problem, as for wich other programmes are associated with tiffs and jpegs - well i know photshop is associated with tiffs and jpegs, and so is my windows browser, tho i use both programmes - My Pictures Browser (XP) to view and store JPegs from my camera to my HDD, and PS7 to Edit and save as Tiffs / JPegs as Finnished work to HDD
Any further Ideas re Possible conflicts and/or Configuration of files to prevent the aforementioned problems i am experiencing would be great, Is it possible to avoid file conflicts by enabling/disabling
file associations alltogether ? ie preventing programmes stealing my settings, is this a possibillity ?
Other programmes i run are Desktop Backgrounds via Nvidia nview, Adobe photoshop album starter edition(tho only rarely).

The one thing I did was to associated my jpegs, and tiffs and other flattened images primarily to one program and my psds to Photoshop. That just made life easier for me. I still had associations to IE and some other programs but the primary was to my jpeg viewer.
