After the last CC update, I had major troubles getting my system to work. A few interventions of the Adobe help team later, I decided to format c and reinstall Windows. I did all the updates, checked for the latest drivers and installed the CC app, a fresh download from Adobe.
I then installed the apps and opened Premiere Pro. That got stuck, memory used to the max and wouldn't even close. CC crashed. Restart, open After Effect, same story. PS, Lightroom Classic, same thing. There is Nothing else on this PC! It is a fresh install! And it all happened after your latest update. It has been weeks now that I am unable to work in a decent matter. Seen my age, the time you shorten my life with this, the time I put into fixing your software and my hourly rates, you owe me a lifetime of free software!
I installed Premiere 14.2 and that works flawlessly. With 14.3.1 it is impossible to do anything, not even open the preferences. On a fresh install of everything! On a 8core i7 with 24gb of ram. Not the fastest machine, but it should be workable, no?
