      Having problem with my premiere 6.0 editing software. When I turn on my computer, taking forever to open premiere and sometimes only opened the Navigation, Effects and the transition after all that waiting about 10-15 and more minutes. Kind of sense it if my computer needs additional memory(curently has 512). Any idea what it is and seem frustrating to edit my stuff and at some point won’t able to render the movie(start previewing for about 1-2 minutes and from – say 10 min duration of render time suddenly turn to 12hrs and kept freeeeezing). Thank you in advance.

      I defragmented very recent and did not help. By the way, my PC has 512 mb-memory/2.1 Ghz/with sufficient HD. Never had a problem before. Been using the same setup for the last 2 years. Un installed Premiere and installed again didn’t help neither. I am just wondering if it is needed more memory, I have to check on the slot if there is a room for additional memory. On the quetion to if Premiere is a good editor program, It works for me until this problem occured. Thank you all for your time.

      If you can, I recommend you the ultimate solution: reinstall Windows, all the drivers and the applications (I sure hope you regularly backup your system settings).

      It could be that some other programs (spyware or adware) are taking up usage on the memory and the cpu. Go to the download section of http://www.lavasoftusa.com/ and download the free version of the Ad-Aware program. You might have spyware hidden in your system and that would make it very very slow.

      Hope this helps. If it doesn’t then I would go with svhs suggestion.

      One last suggestion. If you are running antivirus software on you computer, when you are going to start editing, disable it. That will free up a ton of resources that Premier could use. On the safe side, make sure you first disconnect the PC from the internet to prevent a virus coming in while you antivirus is disabled.

      I had the same problem – I believe it had something to do with a sound driver that was installed.

      I think there is some tips on how to re-create your profile that could fix it as well. You might want to check on the adobe forums.

      When I upgraded to 6.5 it fixed my problem for me and never had it since.

      Thank you all for your time and effort. What I would like to add as rarobles indicated, spyware or adware taking up usage on the memory was, I am not sure for adware but for the spyware, my computer is strictly for video editing. That means no internet connection to it. Every now and then I add up third party effects, titling, audio and other softwares. As per compusolver, at first – it was ok and running well until very recent. One last point though, I have lots of unknown files like with an .exe? extensions. A while ago I tried to delete some of these files and created some hiccups on the performance. Per tpainter ,Also, do you have any idea and when you preview/rendered your final movie what do you do or on what format should be saved to use as a future reference when you delete the raw footage of same project. In short, would it be possible to save final movie on the computer while raw footage deleted in order to save some HD space? as always, thank you.
