With any PPro project, when I click to exit the program, there's about a 1-2 second delay, the PPro window is dimmed and a few seconds later a dialog pops up stating that "PPro CS6 has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available." Closing this dialog then closes PPro. I've uninstalled Production Premium, cleaned out the registry and re-installed it but it still occurs even with default settings.
Even with a new basic DV-NTSC project with nothing added to it yet, this happens. Open it, wait a few seconds, then close it.
I have the following additional info:
PPro CS6 6.01
Widnows 7 64bit with all updates
nVidia (eVga) GTX-580 with latest drivers
The Application Error event log shows:

I hope somebody has an idea about what to do because this is very annoying.
Well, it appears that my workspace, that I've used over the past couple of years, was causing the problem. After changing workspaces and creating a new one (and unchecking Import workspace from projects), things are working properly again. I guess it somehow got corrupted. Wow, something so simple.
