Premiere Pro/Media Encoder chew up all my PC's memory space

Hello 
I've been having some major issues with rendering/encoding my projects in both Premiere Pro and Media encoder. 
For some reason, over the last 24 hours, both programs have skyrocketed the memory/RAM usage whenever I attempt to render something. This often leaves me at 10% encoded before I receive one of the various error messages, followed by my PC crashing thanks to the lack of memory space. The project I'm trying to render is 2:29:18 long. I've never had any issues like this previously, as I've rendered out 3-4 hour long projects within the last 2 weeks. 

My PC specs are: 
RAM: Corsair Vengeance RBG Pro 32gb
Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 2600 Six Core Processor (3400 Mhz)
GPU: MSI GeForce RTX Gaming X Trio
Power Supply: Cooler Master V1000 Platinum
SSD: 3.63TB
External Storage: 2x 2TB Drives

Things I've already tried: 
- Restarting my PC
- Restarting Premiere Pro/Media Encoder
- Uninstalling and reinstalling
- Deleting preferences
- Clearing Caches 
- Allocating more RAM to the programs 
- Using the programs on another system
- Copy-pasting my work into a new project file 
- Redoing all my editing in a new project file

If someone could help me fix this issue that would be wonderful. I'm forced to stop my productions thanks to this and I cannot advance until this is fixed.

Guess you can't help when you know it's an issue with your program, not my PC.  I found 2 work arounds: Cut the project into 15 minute pieces and render it in chunks, then stitch it together and render it as a whole afterwards, or, the faster method; Use Filmora or some other more reliable video editing software.  I've had issues with Adobe products in the past, but this really takes the cake. Your products are getting worse and worse with each update. Are you trying to fix something that's no...

I've had issues with Adobe products in the past, but this really takes the cake. Your products are getting worse and worse with each update. Are you trying to fix something that's not broken and making a mess or something? Cause this is hilariously bad. 

I will not be repurchasing any subsciptions from Adobe what-so-ever once my subscription ends. I would prefer to invest my money into better, more reliable products.
