Illustrator stops working/responding and closes down erasing any progress I've made on my current project. I'm not terribly tech savy so please formulate answers in leyman's terms. I have an ASUS Laptop and I have Bridge, Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightroom, InDesign and Flash, all from the Creative Cloud suite, installed. I have 512 MB of VRAM (because I was told I needed at least that to run these programs). I'm not sure about any other specs but am willing to be directed to where I can find them if needed. I also have a back up external drive that I use to store the bulk of my photos. I have Windows 8 OS. Let me know what other info is needed to help diagnose my problem.
Thank you in advance for any help.
