Photoshop suddenly restarts WIN XP - Adobe Photoshop 7, CS, CS2 & CS3

I just upgraded from 98SE to XP. I have PS 6.0. It worked fine with 98, but I find that it crashes constantly with XP. I increased my scratch disk to 80%, have about 400 mb ram. I don't know what else to do to get rid of this problem. Help!...

    I have Photoshop 6.0.1 running with Windows XP Home sp1 - and it all runs
    really well. I have 512mb of RAM and a 7gb hard drive. If your scratch disk
    is 80% of the hard drive, might that be the source of your problems?
    WindowsXP needs some disk space too.

    The only Photoshop / WinXP issue I've come across is if Photoshop, when
    being installed, takes over the JPG and TIF file extensions, which WinXP
    also uses. That can cause Windows Explorer to crash when looking at folder
    contents as icons, thumbnails or filmstrip but doesn't bring down the
    kernel, Windows Explorer will then relaunch itself. The solution is to
    restore the JPG and TIF file types to Windows Picture and Fax viewer. Open
    any folder, go to the TOOLS menu, then FOLDER OPTIONS then select the FILE
    TYPES tab.

    John - the whole issue is already addressed in the FAQ topic. Scratch disk has nothing to do with it.
