What version of Premiere Elements are you using and on what computer operating system is it running?
Or, is it that you are just thinking about using some version of Premiere Elements and are doing some computer security homework before purchase?
Choices such as these can be specific to a customer rather than a generalization for all. When I had Microsoft Security Essentials installed on Windows XP, I could never get Premiere Elements to open. When I went to Windows 7 and Microsoft Security Essentials, I had no problems opening or other for Premiere Elements. In the case of my Windows XP experience, I never did get anyone online to confirm that happening.
Beyond the opening and performance of Premiere Elements programs, another important issue is file downloads that are blocked by anti-virus and firewalls.
Thanks for that John.
Thanks for reply. I'm running Premiere Elements 10 with Vista.
I've burned a slideshow today after I'd discovered that in Norton I
could tell it to stand down when Premiere Elements was running ( I
hadn't realised that before). It did seem to help, as previously the
transitions were stuttery and shaky, this time they were a lot better.
I am thinking of moving to Windows 7 which I have on the laptop and
like. Was also wondering whether to change to Norton when it runs out
in a couple of months, but now I've found the trick I learned today
maybe I'll stick with it. I was thinking of Kaspersky but other seem
to have had lots of problems with that.
Whenever I see Premiere Elements 10 user, I think Premiere Elements 10 NVIDIA video card display issue.
There is currently an epidemic specific to Premiere Elements 10 users with computers that use a NVIDIA video card. The fix (for now and expected to be permanent) is the roll back of the video card driver version rather than the classical make sure you have the latest video card driver version installed. If your computer is using a NVIDIA video card, please check out the following thread in which I have tried to maintain an ongoing history of this situation.
This issue would be expected to exist on Vista as well as other versions of Windows.
Your problems with the transitions or display may be due to this issue rather than the anti-virus program. Let us see what your further troubleshooting reveals.
