Crashed twice in Tutorial

I was in the tutorial. I had a horizontal split; the top part was in corkboard, the bottom was in text view. I was switching back and forth between the corkboards in part 2 and steps 7, 8, and 9 when it crashed. When I tried it again about 15 minutes later, the same thing happened.

I’m running Windows 7 Starter Edition, and I had 3 windows open in Google Chrome as well as 2 in Open Office.

(I hope I did this right. I’m a brand-new user.)
