Pocket PC Emulator crashes my system...

Hi there,
yesterday I was using Pocket PC Emulator for the first time.
When I tried to open it through VC++ my computer crashed. Then I tried going through VB and it worked fine. I used it for a couple of hours, with almost no problems at all (just sometimes there were problems with the refresh).
But, today, when I try to run the Emulator, my system will crash and reboot.
I've got a Dell Dimension 4550 running Windwos XP.
Anyone else with similar experiences?
What do you think it could be?
Thanks

Sorry, I haven't seen this problem myself. Have you perused the Microsoft knowledge base? There are some useful articles in there.

Yes, I've read some of them, but I'll keep on trying.
First I thought it had to do with usins Windows XP. From Microsoft, you can read that the Emulator is only for Windows 2000 and NT, but, if you read some of those articles you mention (some of them quite helpful) they explain how to do things with Windows XP as well.
After some more reading and thinking I just came to think that it might have to do with using two screens. My computer is a Dell, and their technical support won't offer any help with dual screen problems because they say that Windows is not really designed towards that use (I don't remember the exact words).
Thanks!
