Divx Codec crashes my system - any advice?

I just installed the Divx 4.11 codec, and while playing an .avi or .mpeg (using windows media player 7) it causes my system to either reboot or crash to a blue-screen-o-fatal exception error. I updated the drivers for my Hercules 3D Prophet III (aka gForce 3) and it still happens.

It seems to crash if I run any application other than media player at the same time.

This seems rather severe and wierd. Any advice?

System:
AMD Athlon Thunderbird 1.2GB 233Mhz
Windows 98 2nd edition
256MB RAM
Hercules 3D Prophet III geforce 3
