Bill, the link to the article is perfect.
When I shutdown Norton N360, I finally got good results. I did
disconnect from network, since AV was disabled.
I cant believe how picky this PRE is. I can understand when
wrting to a DVD, but to an AVI? Adobe needs some real
programmers, or to allow the ones they have to fix this
crap. Thanks for your help.
You are most welcome and happy editing.
It sounds like Norton was the issue -- not Premiere Elements.
I might consider swapping in another antivirus program. Both Avast! Free and Microsoft Security Essentials cost nothing, work great and never cause these kinds of conflicts with programs.
How can you argue with saving money AND getting a more efficient product?
And what is often not considered is that video editing is one of the most taxing operations that one can perform with their computer. Little else will tax all of the computer's sub-systems to the same limits. Extreme gaming will tax the GPU, as will 3D work. CAD is tough too, but most folk are using special workstations, that do nothing else.
Most computers are not tuned, and also have tons of bloatware, that just gets in the way of video editing. That is why I did the Clean, Lean, Mean Editing Machine article - shut that other "stuff" down, and do not do much multi-tasking, while video editing. A good, stout, well-maintained machine can run all the programs necessary. When one stops doing the video-editing, just turn the other stuff back on.
Good luck to all,

I agree with Steve... N360 is the problem
I have CS5 Master Collection, so use Premiere Pro and Encore for editing AVI and AVCHD and making a DVD
I also have NIS 2010 (Norton Internet Security) which I do NOT turn off or disable during any work... and I have ZERO problems
N360 is, based on problems with a relative's computer that I fixed by removing N360 and installing NIS, extremely intrusive
You might try uninstalling N360 and buying and using NIS
