    pal.exe error on Premiere crash

    sarucci Level 1

      Has anyone ever heard of pal.exe, know what it is? Can't find many references to it on forums or google search.

       

      Premiere has been crashing a lot. Today it's whenever I try to normalize audio (works for a couple of clips then crashes). Restarting program and/or Windows doesn't help. It crashes often, not just on audio normalization.

       

      Often when it crashes (including everytime today), I get an error that pal.exe has stopped working. Sometimes I get this error when Windows starts up.

       

      All unnecessary startup items are off (though that doesn't make a difference), windows is optimized per

       

      Any wisdom welcome. Thanks.
