Anyone? I'm still having this issue.
How exactly are you viewing the export?
I have viewed these files in Windows Media Player, VLC, Quicktime, and Media Player Classic. All have the exact same issue. They also have the exact same issue when played on a different computer (a MacBook Pro) with the same players. I have tried exporting in H.264 (.mp4 container) and MPEG2, same issue. They also have the same issue when I import the file I exported back into PrPro to play it back in there.
When I export on my MacBook Pro with Premiere Pro, everything works fine. This leads me to believe that it's either something wrong with the installation on my PC's version of PrPro or some hardware/software is interacting with my version of PrPro strangely, the latter of which I think is somewhat unlikely since it was working fine just three days before this issue came up.
When I re-installed PrPro, it gave me an error saying some optional components could not be installed. I looked into it, and it said that it could not install Visual Basic C++ 2008. which is fine since I already have it installed (both 2008 and 2010, and x86 and x64 versions of both).
I will try exporting one more time to see if the latest update today has somehow resolved the issue.

That was my thinking as well. You could also try this:
Okay, I re-installed Premiere, cleaned my cache, reset preferences. STILL the same problem.
This is INCREDIBLY frustrating now. Does anyone understand why this could be happening?
Okay, another COMPLETELY random error I am finding.
I decided to try exporting in H.264 demuxed for the hell of it to see what was going on.
The video file (.mv4) was funky. It started off with some frames that were from a few seconds later in the video and was all weird.
The audio file (.mpa) was ABSOLUTELY bizarre. For some crazy reason, it was actually the beginning of a video file from a COMPLETELY different project, like the first few frames. It also included the VIDEO from that file, even though it's supposed to be audio only.
This is absolutely insane. What the hell is going on here?!
Have you tried exporting a .wav file?
Is the problem only with this one project, or all projects?
.WAV file exports just fine! So that's okay, I suppose.
This has been happening across all projects.
I need to start editing a feature film in about two months, so I need to resolve the issue by then. I figure it's not a bad time to do a complete wipe and reinstall of my system at this point. I'm currently backing up my files not already on the Cloud and getting ready to start a complete re-install by Tuesday.

We're on the same page.
Be sure to only install whet you need for the job. Use a second computer for everything else.
