I know I have to keep my OS clean of useless applications, and I do it everytime.
Never switched off this "Windows Index": I'll look for and try to switch it.
I'll let you know.
Have you got a look at my "gear"?
- Is everything compatible?
- Does a 64bit OS with 8 Gb RAM give a big "go" to Adobe CS?
Look at your gear by running the http://ppbm4.com benchmark and find out how your gear holds up in comparison to other systems. Send Bill the results and he will incorporate your results in the listing.
Thanks Harm, I will.
Just a specification, Bill: as "Windows index" do you mean remove the check in HDDs Properties\General?
Happy new year to you both.
Bill: as "Windows index" do you mean remove the check in HDDs Properties\General?
Yes. Windows Indexing can't really get much useful info from AV and working files, but will try. As these are very large, it will try and try. I turn it OFF for each disk and for all folders.
If possible, upgrade to a 64bit operating system with at least 8GB of RAM. I used to have a 32bit system with 4GB ram like you, and experienced the same issue: Premiere would be fine just after launch but after use would grow unstable and finally crash. But after the upgrade to 64bit and 8GB RAM, Premiere became rock solid and I have not had a crash since.
