I've been having multiple problems with Adobe Premiere Elements on Vista since i bought it about a week ago. i cannot do ANYTHING (even import video files) without the whole screen freezing and me having to restart the computer. bear in mind that I can still move the mouse, however ctrl+alt+delete fails to work and i cannot click anything.
okay guys, i am going to copy and paste the system requirements for you so that you can see if your computer actually meets them. I realised that whilst i'm having problems, I should at least attempt to help others too! to check, go onto (Vista) control panel/system and maintenance/system .
I realised that actually I only have 1.60MHz and 1015MB RAM and so that's probably a contributing factor. but any other help that can be offered would be gratefully accepted!
Kindest Regards, Lucy xx
