On Vista it's located here...

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\

The appdata folder is hidden by default so you'll either have to set it to show all files or just browse to it manually by putting it in the address bar.

Have you got the latest patch installed and does it do it if you start a new game?

all graphics need to be installed in:
XP: c:\documents and setting\"username"\my documents\sports interactive\football manager 2009\graphics\pictures
Vista: c:\users\"username"\documents\sports interactive\football manager 2009\graphics\pictures

If all the graphics are installed there in the correct place, then it should stop crashing while allowing you to keep the pics and stuff you've added.
I installed them wrong the first time i played FM09 myself and got the whole crashing during tatics & matches etc.
