Can anyone help... please?
It seems to be mostly happening when I'm turning down the luminance noise on ISO 1600 files.
First of all, I'd try updating ACR to 5.1.
However, it sounds to me like you may have a hardware problem.
I've narrowed down the issue a bit more.
It's ONLY happening when I'm viewing @ 100%, and when I'm moving the noise reduction slider. Can I e-mail someone one of my RAW files to see if it happens to them?
Post in a place I can download it from please. Thanks!
Okay RAW locked my system up again. I was using the hand tool to move an image, again, magnified. This was the second file I trying to process.
I'm desperate. I need ACR for my business.
I cannot find a rational cause for the freeze. I am considering buying a new system JUST to fix this...
At my wits end.
With protected memory OSes (e.g. Windows 2000, NT, Vista, and Mac OS X), "whole system freezes" are almost always the result of hardware failures.
Camera Raw tends to work the CPU and RAM harder than most other applications, so it is often the "canary in the coal mine" in triggering these underlying hardware problems.

Camera Raw 5.2 is now available. Maybe this will fix the problem.
FWIW, I didn't see any problems on OS X/CS4/CR5.2.
BTW, the specs on your machine look fine. More memory wouldn't hurt.
Thanks for replies..
I was recently having generic BSoDs until I removed 2 512mb modules. (about 6-8 days ago) I did have 3 GB.
The BSoD cleared when the RAM was removed.
Perhaps there are still problems. I also ran Memtest86+ for hours and passed. (even the faulty sticks passed)
Ok, I'm tempted to change the motherboard, CPU, RAM. Would I benefit more from a quad core than a dual core processor for ACR?
I tried your file on 2 different machines here and don't get the freeze. My machines are different than yours, though. (2 Intel flavors)
Can you try updating to 5.2 (posted today)?
Did you install any other Ps plug-ins beside the default? Do you recall what version of CR was installed in CS3? Had you run any system or video card updates around the time this started?
I'm in little doubt that the freezes are indicating system failure. Using ACR just brought the beginnings of this to the surface.
It locked up again while using firefox. Yes, I've used raw 5.1 5.2 without difference. I have'nt made any major chances to my software/drivers/hardware enviroment, except removal of ram.
The first version of camera raw that supported the EOS 450D was on CS3. No other plug in's installed.
I'm seriously looking towards Intel at the moment!!
