When I try to create or play a clip PP will lock up the entire PC and cause it to shut down. Occaionally it will state that it ran into a problem and ask if I want to report it. Once it said it ran into problems and needed to reinstall. This happens multiple times a day - 10 or more. I cannot get my work done and we are now looking at getting another package as it is impacting our ability to publish media for our products.
Disk is at 40% usage, memory at 50%, CPUat 17%, so we should be good in that area.

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 install 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.
Do you have any third party plugins that need to be updated?
