Frequent crashes with CS5.5 all of a sudden.

Hi.  I've been running AE CS5.5 fine on my Pentium I7 Win7 12 gig RAM, clean system, but suddenly I'm running into frequent crashes that I'm trying to isolate.
When it happens, it occurs when I try and do a RAM preview.  It renders the frames fine, but when I inturrupt it (keypad INS key) to play what it has, it sometimes says that it can't continue... saying something went wrong with Trapcode Particular, then the Tint filter, and then some other filter.  I don't think they are actually to blame.. just victims of something else.
The system seems sluggish often, too.  Normally, it's fine, but (I would imagine) when the RAM is filling up with the previews, it sometimes acts like it's an ancient computer... very slow pause before reacting to anything.  Generally, a Purge All clears it up immediately, but I'm not sure why it is straining so often, with an I7 processor, 12 gigs of ram, and a clean system.  Wasn't doing that with any other projects, and I suspect it has something to do with this one.
I THINK it might have been triggered by my inclusion of particles (although they are hardly enough to strain the system, and I've done this before fine).  Renders fine, no crashes.  Really, only just when I hit the keypad INS key to play a RAM preview.... and that's only about half the time.  Otherwise, it's working just fine.  So, it's seemingly random, although I suspect it's something with the RAM being eaten away as frames are stored as I jump around the timeline.
I believe it wrote a diagnostic txt file somewhere, but I don't know where it put it, unfortunately.
Sometimes, even a newly started AE and project load will crash immediately when I try and preview.
Another possible clue...  I have audio files (.wavs mostly), and sometimes when I would view the waveforms, I get some sort of error there too, but it continues on just fine (showing the waveform).
I'll often get the 'AfterEffects can't continue... Contact Adobe' window, with (0::42) at the bottom.
Only other error I sometimes get is the 'AE can't continue: Damaged Item (26:311)' one... usually when I'm trying to save the crash file before it closes the app.
Any suggestions as to where to begin?  Is that log file worth looking at?  If so, where would that be?  It's only happening sometimes... otherwise, it runs just fine (and has always rendered the whole scene no problem).
Hope someone can help.  Sorry if this is yet another tediusly vague and all-to-familiar post!
Thanks

That I have yet to determine.  Certainly doesn't seem to crash if I take off the effects layers, such as particles.  I have to isolate each thing and see.  It's just difficult, since it only crashes SOME of the time, so it's hard to get an obvious cause/effect.
As far as I know, I'm using the most current version of Particular.
Seems a few things are running odd.
AfterEffects definitely becomes very sluggish in its response to mouse clicks at points... an obvious delay after each action, as if it needs time to think of each action.  Seems to be a memory thing (as it's fixed with a purge), although I'm not sure why it reaches a point where AE is struggling to keep it's own interface responsive.
Still getting occasional errors when I try and view waveforms of audio layers, although it continues on fine after the error message.  The error itself is kind of vague, so of no real help.
Just did another full render test, and it does it perfectly fine every time.  Something to do with the RAM preview, it seems.  Seems RAM is acting up both in that sense (RAM preview) as well as the sluggishness AE sometimes gets into (seemingly after you have previewed and/or jumped around the timeline a lot, so (in both cases) a lot of frames have been stored.  Still not sure why it reaches a point where it's struggling.  Disk Cache is on, so it shouldn't 'run out of RAM' in that sense.  Really confused...  An I7 with 12 gigs of RAM shouldn't be struggling like that (...even though it's random and only occassional).  I was wondering if I have something configured wrong in the memory settings.

    Hi,
    I'm having a problem with the stabilization all of a sudden. I did an analyze. The amount of shake isn't terrible but it's there. There are no squiggly lines in the clip I'm trying to stabilize. As you can see in the screenshot that it allows me to click the "Smooth clip motion" but the slider is not there for zoom. Any ideas why this is happening all of a sudden? It happens on all clips in this event. The entire event was analyzed after importing.

    Often printing problems are a sign of corrupt preferences. Go to HD > Users > (your account) > Library > Preferences, delete the com.apple.iwork.pages.plist file & then restart Pages.

  • Strangest problem with psd's all of a sudden.  Any insight?

    Hello everyone! Hope all are well this Saturday evening.
    I've encountered the strangest problem that has seem to come out of nowhere.
    DVDStudio pro has all of a sudden decided that psd's are incompatible format.
    Here is the strangest part, it's doing this on 2 desktops and a laptop all with dvd studio pro.
    Not only won't it let me import the new master menu psd file we've created to replace the one that was in there previously, but it won't let me import almost any psd file previously used. Even if I just create a blank psd file from scratch.
    Has anyone ever encountered this?
    The psd's are in RGB btw and the message it says exactly is
    "IMPORT ASSETS
    INCOMPATIBLE FORMAT"
    I tried saving as a tiff as well and same thing.
    I can't think of anything that would make this happen to 3 computers!

    I turned the phone off and back on. I hooked up to my computer. I can access the store but when I try to upgrade I get a messge that the phone cannot access the store. I got one of the two apps I was trying to upgrade by frist going to Purchases (in the App Update section) but the other sitll did not work and I got the same message that store cannot be accessed.

    Thanks Bob, I don't know why but it all of a sudden worked a few days later. It's a mystery but at least problem solved.

  • Is anyone else having frequent crashing with iphoto 11 while editing photos?   We have 2 imacs (2007) and 1 Macbook pro (2010) and all three exhibit the same spinning rainbow wheel and crash after 3-7 edits.

    all macs are running 10.6.7
    all have 4gb ram
    I saw some posts about the early intel nvidia issues, but the fix mentioned was 10.6.7 which we already have.
    same library worked perfectly before iphoto 11.

  • Frequent crashes with 12.0.0.77

    I decided to check to see if flash player was updated today and happily I saw that there was a new version. Since the update previous to this one I was very pleased with the fixes that have come out however I notice one rather irritating feature about this release.
    It crashes quite often with common tasks I perform every day where the other one did not, 5 times in the last half hour to and hour alone.
    I run Firefox, latest available version and the tasks I do are video chat discussion boards. (Similar to Omegle in format but less seedy) When I click next to get the next feed I find it will crash quite a bit. I am uncertain whether or not watching videos on youtube effects the likelihood of this but I was surprised by the releases instability with this function when the previous release only crashed once a week. I am not a developer so I cannot see if there is a way to fix this myself but any effort made to help would be appreciated.
    If it is a known issue and a fix is already being worked on please disregard this post. But if it is common with anyone else I would be interested in knowing. I also run this on Windows 7 Home Edition.

    Hi,
    Please uninstall the App and re-install the App to see how it works.
    If issue persists, I suspect that it is a Mac related issue, please contact Apply support for help.
    Thanks.

    Since it hung in the ProtectiveShutdown, it's hard to know if it managed to write the data or not. So check. It may have useful information on the problem.
