    After Effects CC Crashing Itself and Computer During Previews and Rendering


      After several attempts to render a video in After Effects CC (have also tried on CS6) and it crashing either itself or my entire computer, I have uninstalled and reinstalled all of my Adobe applications deleting the preferences while I was at it. After reinstall, I am still coming across the same problem. Quicktime is installed as well. The problem occurs at different times when I'm scrubbing a video, RAM previewing, and rendering. I have tried rendering with "Render Multiple Frames Simultaneously" on and off. It has worked on Draft Settings for rendering before, but now that isn't even working. The information for my system and other needed info is below:
