Thanks Steve (you're up early!).
I'll check that and get PSE to down size my photos.
It would seem unlikely though. I've tried this scenario several times. If I select the preset groups first then I can add effects without scrolling and hence have no issue.

Have you optimized your photos sizes, per the FAQs to the right of this forum?

First, here is an ARTICLE on resizing stills in PS/PSE that might offer a tip, or two.
Next, crashes when mousing/scrolling are often caused by video drivers. I'd check the nVidia driver. Also, there have been reports of issues with the newer nVidia drivers and problems with Adobe software. Check to see if you have the nVidia 3D turned on and that module in the driver installed. There is one other nVidia driver module that has given some people problems, but I cannot recall the exact name right now - something like psych___. I'll look for some recent threads with both modules listed and post the correct name for the other one.
Yeah, I'd already got through this problem by uninstalling the 3D and Physx drivers.
Hope this isn't another driver issue - I shan't have any left soon!
I understand your frustration with the nVidia drivers. On the PrPro forum, many have had to roll-back to earlier nVidia drivers, as it seems that so many of the newer ones break things in Adobe programs. Odd, but about the time that Adobe and nVidia teamed up on the CUDA/CX project, things went south in a hurry. There are tons of folk jumping ship to ATI. Now, I'm luckily running Adobe stuff fine on my two nVidia machines, but have to admit that I'm using older drivers for both my Quadro and my GeForce. I am reluctant to update either right now, and only hope that nVidia gets its act together, before some OS update smurfs my drivers.
It seems that scrolling through the Effects using the scroll bar also causes a crash..

Try the 182.08 drivers from http://www.nvidia.com/Download/Find.aspx?lang=en-us. These pre-date some of the newer PhysX & 3D features that have triggered PrEl7 crashes.
