Why Does my PC crash when I run mame games in Windows Vista
More details would be needed for a correct fix, but...

You might have to run the mame program under administrator privilages. Vista is a quirky operating system. It's safer than XP, but a bit harder to control because of the safeguards.

Try right clicking the mame program shortcut and select, "run as administrator". See if that works.
