Crashes When Civilopedia Is Opened
Every time I open the Civilopedia the game freezes and crashes, no other problems observed so far (I got about 5 turns in before I tried to look something up, reloaded the initial autosave and opened the 'pedia and got a freeze and crash to desktop again, so it does not seem to be related to the turn or anything else other than the Civilopedia being opened).
I'm running on a Bootcamped Macbook Pro:
Windows 7 Ultimate
Core2 Duo @2.66GHz
4 GB Ram
GeForce 9600M GT
You mentioned you're on Bootcamp. Have you tried installing nVidia's Windows 7 drivers from their website?
I get this on Windows 7
I have this same issue... about 50% of the time I open the civilopedia (either from a pop-up or from the menu bar at the top) the game freezes. Alt-Tab doesn't even work, so I have to Ctrl-Alt-Del to get back to the screen where I can see that "Civilization 5 has stopped responding."
Post if this does not work

I'm still having issues
Windows confirmed my drivers were up to date... is no one else having this problem?
Dx9 solved problem
I was using Dx10/11 (figured my GeForce GTX260 could handle 10, at least)... apparently there is just a little too much going on at times. It would also crash if multiple pop-ups occurred. Switched to Dx9, and no more crashes (don't really notice a decrease in performance either)...
I have the same problem and am using Windows Vista and an 8800GT with the newest Nvidia drivers.
I have 8800GT and had the same problem here. Just update your nvidia drivers and everything will run fine. I have also significantly improved my performance.
