Photoshop Elements frequently crashes while working on images

While working on images, Photoshop Elements 6.0 will frequently crash. I get the message "Adobe Photoshop Elements 6.0 (Editor) has stopped working." The windows error reporting system then pops up.  This usually happens when I am working on larger files (40 mb).

Please advise.
