Unhappy Screen (Probably only X, since the mouse moves) freezes when I use the NVidia driver

I tried to install the nvidia driver 1.0-4363. First I used the automatic installer, and in a second try I used the GLX and kernel .tar.gz, but the result was the same.
When I run 'startx', everything works fine, I got the nvidia screen and KDE starts. But in KDE, if I launch some applications as Mozilla for example, the screen freezes ! Only the mouse cursor can be moved (but without any effect when clicking on something). I have to reboot the system...
I had already tried the1.0-4191 version, but had the same problem.

Here is my configuration:

- video card : Riva TNT2 Model 64
- driver version : 1.0-4363
- distribution : Mandrake 9.1 (Build OS : Linux 2.4.21-0.13mdksmp i686 [ELF])
- video bios revision :
- processor : Pentium III 733Mhz
- motherboard model : ELITE P6BAP-ME (Chipset VIA 82c693A/596B)

Here is my XF86Config-4 file:
