    Error occurs when dragging and dropping a Video Transition


      Hi there.


      This is my first post here, as I have only recently upgraded to Premiere Pro CS5 from a very old version.  I am running into a big problem with video transitions.  Whenever I try to drag and drop a transition onto my timeline, Premiere crashes and says "Sorry, a serious error has occurred that requires Adobe Premiere to shut down..."  Then the screen just hangs there and I need to do a Ctrl+Alt+Del to close the program.  Please note that crossfades work with no issues whatsoever, and I have not encountered any other errors.  Any ideas?


      Here are some of the specs of my system:


      CPU: Intel Core i7 950 @ 3.07 GHz

      Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470

      OS: Windows 7 64-bit

      RAM: 12 GB

      I have 4 drives with the programs and files allocated per the suggestions in this forum.
