I did some additional testing and it is caused by switching to ANYTHING other than Adobe Premiere Elements 13 during editing. For example I clicked focus to Windows Explorer to look up a picture and it immediately crashed. Another time I went to Google Chrome to look something up and it crashed. Yet I was able to work hours without a crash as long as I stayed continuously working in Premiere Elements.
I have a similar "gamer" computer from ASUS. I have no trouble with multiple programs. As a pure guess, can you try to turn off the "Hardware Acceleration" on the Preferences > General menu? Or, if it is off, try turning it on.
Still need help please!
Sorry for the trouble with Premiere Elements 13. Could you please give me the crash report also?

Because it took so long to get a response we ended up wiping all adobe products from the computer and starting over. Thanks for finally responding, but do not need help with this now.
