I second Bruce's comment about unhelpful comments.  
It may actually have nothing to do with Windows in fact.
Now getting back to the crash issue.  Bob if you are still having the same issue with that file, maybe you can post that (or provide a link to the shape file you loaded).  It could be something to do with the shapefile.
I recall having this same issue with one particular geometry file way back in PgAdmin 1.6 and it was when I scrolled to a specific record it would crash, but then later additions (I either maybe never selected the geometry field again) or it was fixed in later versions.  Doing an AsText always seemed to work where as displaying the raw binary was where I ran into issues.
The other possibility is that it could be a defective graphics card. I forget which video cards I had bad runs with, but I remember having this same exact issue with my favorite programming editor JEdit.  I had 2 identical computers with same drivers etc and for some reason I would get intermittent crashes on one of them.  I finally just got fed up and replaced the graphics card and then it worked fine.
Just some thoughts.
