Just found the fix, the way to do it is through rebuilding windows as it seems to have been an operating system problem.

 

Thanks to the staff at adobe for their help.

Delete the Media Cache and Media Cache files:

If that doesn't work, try resetting the preferences:
https://community.adobe.com/t5/premiere-pro/faq-how-to-reset-trash-preferences-in-premiere-pro/td-p/...

If that doesn't work, try resetting the Workspaces:
Reset a workspace
Reset the current workspace to return to its original, saved layout of panels.
1. Do one of the following:
• Click the Workspace menu icon and select Reset to Saved Layout.
• Choose Window > Workspace > Reset to Saved Layout.
from here:
https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/using/workspaces.html

If that doesn't work, try Preferences > Audio Hardware and set Input to None.

If that doesn’t work, try updating or rolling back your graphics driver directly from the video card manufacturer’s site. If NVIDIA, do a clean installation of the latest Studio Driver (NOT the Game Driver)

If that doesn't work, try creating a new project and import the old one into it.

Hi, sorry for the late reply had to sleep. My computer spec is:

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-9700F CPU @ 3.00GHz 3.00 GHz

RAM: 16.0 GB (15.9 GB usable)

System Type: 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor

Also I have two hard drives one is 500 GB(C drive) and I have 265 GB left, My second one is 2TB (D drive) and I have 1.49TB left

 

On the first C Hard drive I only really have windows on it and a few other things to do with my pc aswell as some adobe stuff, a video downloader and some stuff to do with my recording software

Then for my D drive: that is where I keep everything important like games, documents, video footage, and stuff for future projects.

 

Many thanks.

If the two hard drives are HDD and not SSD, then you will have poor performance, but it shouldn't crash.

Please use the free MediaInfo and post a screenshot of the properties of your media in tree view:
https://mediaarea.net/en/MediaInfo

Many users are having issues with VFR. If the file is variable frame rate, use Handbrake to convert to constant frame rate:

Here is a tutorial:

Shutter Encoder may also be used to convert to Constant Frame Rate:
