Thank you very much for your info!I will make note of that.
So, for those still crashing, here are two things that have (for some people) fixed the problem:
1. Turn off the Mousewheel in the Mouse Control Panel. 2. Turn off any Animated Mouse Cursors that you may have used.Many Desktop Themes automatically set animated cursors.You can also change these in the Mouse Control Panel.Although it hasn't been proven, i would bet that the Busy cursor in particular does matter compared to other cursors.
