      resetmaster will probably tell you which application caused the crash.
      you may then be able to use filez to delete its preferences.

      another thing that may be causing it is a corrupted sd card. this has
      happened to me - take the card out and see if the problem goes away.

      I think I used whatever the pc program is to clean the card up.
