    After Effects CS5.5 Crashes- "Sniffer_gpu.exe" stops working

    VeeMan1234 Level 1

      I've had After Effects for a while on this laptop. I recently did a fresh install of Vista on it and just got around to installing CS5(.5) on it again.

       

      Problem:

       

      As soon as I start After Effects CS5.5, an error shows up saying "Sniffer_gpu.exe stopped working"

      Then After Effects crashes :'( This doesn't happen all the time though, every other time I believe.

      Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop seem to running perfectly though. On a totally unrelated subject Cinema 4D is also having issues on my computer and I think the problem might be connected.
