I am pretty much an amateur when it comes to all this so hopefully someone can help me. I am currently using Adobe Premiere elements 10. I use it make videos and slide shows. It keeps locking up, it says stop responding if I leave it set it will usually eventually start working again but sometimes its sets at least 5 minutes. Does any body have any suggestions as to why it does this and how to fix it.
