Help!!! Adobe Elements 2.0 crashing again and again

    Recently, I purchased and downloaded Premier Elements 2.0 to complete a
    project that was started a few months ago with Premier 6.5. The project
    is pretty basic audio and video and comprises about 40 .avi files.

    I uninstalled Premier 6.5 and went to work only to encounter continual
    crashing -- complete freeze-ups requiring cold reboots when working on
    the project -- no matter what I am doing. Even when the playback is
    simply running, with no interaction on my part, the computer freezes
    anywhere -- sometimes only 10 seconds into the playbadck and sometimes
    10 minutes. It also crashes unexpectedly while I am editing clips and
    performing other operations.

    Originally the project was housed on an external USB 2.0 drive. I moved
    it to the local IDE drive and the crashing still continues.

    I tried starting the application while holding the shft key to clear
    the plug-in cache -- still crashes. I am at my wits end...

    Here are some details of the system that might be relevant.

    MS XP Media Center, 2002 with SP2
    Pentium 4 3.0GHz 512 MB RAM
    Realtec AC'97 Audio

    The project is all about the birth of my grandson so it's extremely
    important. Any help will be greatly appreciated by me and my family.

    Thanks in advance,

    My guess is that you can't reliably import projects between Premiere 6.5 and
    Elements. Moving projects between Premiere Pro and Premiere 6.5 will,
    generally, work, but not always. Elements contains a subset of the full
    Premiere control set. Most likely Elements is stumbling over something that
    it doesn't support.

    Does Elements crash if you start a new project from scratch?
