I have used Premiere Elements on numerous semi professional projects, I have found it to be a stable and reliable program.
However I needed something more creative so I purchased Adobe Creative Studio - Production Studio Premium (Pro 2.0/After efffects 7.0 etc). I have not as yet been able to do even basic editing let alone use after effects 7.0 because the computer (spec below) constantly crashes. The Adobe web forum advises that I have a driver conflict. I have virtually rebuilt the computer although I haven't yet resorted to a clean install of Windows XP. But the conflict remains. The computer is well within the Adobe minimum spec.
I had thought a more powerful PC namely a dual core processor and something like an Nvidia 3450 graphics card but it's a lot of money if that's not the problem and especially after the significant outlay of the Premium edition. I would therefore really appreciate any thoughts on the matter before I resort to selling Creative Studio on ebay!
PS I should add that the crashes eminate from the File export command; it dosen't matter what I try to export to e.g. DVD, ISO image, Folder etc.
