    Premiere Pro suddenly SLOW

      I have been using Ppro CS5 for quite a while with no issues.  I am using a HP DV7 with the following specs:


      HP Pavillion DV7

      Intel (R) core (TM) i7 CPU Q720 @ 1.60ghz

      8.00 GB RAM

      64 bit os

      NVIDEA GeForce GT 230M


      I used my computer for my usual AVCHD footage last night with no issues.  I rendered out the footage (It takes FOREVER, but that is typical).


      Things that I have changed recently:

      Yesterday (note, before I worked with the footage from last night) I changed my memory from 6gb to 8gb.  I used HP memory sticks and got the info for the memory directly from HP (assuming that all the specs are correct for the RAM).

      Here are the specs for new RAM:  HP 4GB DDR3-1333

      I have updated Quicktime

      I have updated all adobe products

      I checked out my start up menu and unchecked anything that I felt was unecessary

      I am currently running my antivirus software


      Video drivers are up to date.  Again, last night, after I changed out my RAM, all was working beautifully.


      1. Any thoughts on how to trouble shoot?

      2.  Also, it takes me about 10+ times the duration of a clip to render to flv or MPEG to DVD since I moved into CS5.  Is CS5.5 any faster?  Is it worth an upgrade?
