    Premiere project timeline strobing when using windows search function..

      Hi, I've been noticing a weird issue with Premiere and locked layers strobing/flickering on screen (on the actual timeline). What seems to set it off is if i have a project open, and then go into windows explorer and run the search function on a folder (searching for .avi's or .jpg's or whatever). Once windows starts searching (and after it stops as well) when I go back into Premiere everything starts flickering (most noticeably on the diagonal lines on locked layers in the timeline). It makes it almost impossible to scroll through your project with the flickering, and the only way to fix it is to shut down Premiere and restart. Has anyone else experienced this?

      Yeah, I'm running on Windows XP Pro 64bit, and i'm sure that 'might' be the reason for it, but thought others may experience this as well on other Windows OS systems.

      I've run this on two computers and experienced the same issues:
      Computer 1:
      Intel Core2 Duo CPU - E8400 @ 3.00Ghz
      8 GB RAM
      NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT (latest drivers)
      Windows XP Pro 64bit

      Computer 2:
      Intel Core2 Quad CPU - Q9550 @ 2.83Ghz
      8 GB RAM
      NVIDIA Quadro FX 1700
      Windows XP Pro 64bit
