Why does Adobe Premiere Pro continue to crash? When you ask this question, you are already frustrated and need answers. Many different problems can cause Premiere Pro to crash, so the biggest obstacle is often where to start troubleshooting.

Fortunately, there is a solution that you can try and that tends to work for many people! Otherwise, there are other solutions that you can try. Now let’s dive into Premiere Pro and try to prevent it from crashing!

Updating the version of Adobe Premiere Pro

First of all, the Premiere Pro version you are working with. Errors can be easily corrected by simply updating PP to the latest version. But it can also cause problems. A recent example where the PP media management tool unexpectedly deleted video files from the original hard disk caused many publishers to scratch their heads (and seize their backups).

As a general rule, you should never update Premiere Pro (or your operating system) during the project, unless there is a specific reason to do so. Before the update, I usually give enough time to the guinea pigs to find and report bugs in the latest versions.

July 2024 Update:

You can now prevent PC problems by using this tool, such as protecting you against file loss and malware. Additionally it is a great way to optimize your computer for maximum performance. The program fixes common errors that might occur on Windows systems with ease - no need for hours of troubleshooting when you have the perfect solution at your fingertips:

  • Step 1 : Download PC Repair & Optimizer Tool (Windows 10, 8, 7, XP, Vista – Microsoft Gold Certified).
  • Step 2 : Click “Start Scan” to find Windows registry issues that could be causing PC problems.
  • Step 3 : Click “Repair All” to fix all issues.


However, in some cases, an update of Premiere Pro may be the only way to solve the problem you have. In this case, you must save your sequence and media and note the exact version of Premiere you are currently using. A system for saving system snapshots (something like Time Machine on a Mac) is ideal. So try to update Premiere. If this doesn’t work, or if you have other problems, you can always go back to a previous version. But only if you keep a separate copy of your sequence and media, and you know exactly which version of Premiere you used first.

Check for overheating problems.

Check to see if your computer is heating up while you are working on it. If so, where is it? Is it hidden in a corner of the room without air circulation? Try to put it in a better position and make sure the fans work properly. It may also be useful to manually supply fresh air to the unit.

If it is a laptop, try to give it space to breathe under the base, or even go so far as to get a small fan base to keep it cool.

Testing third-party applications

There are many cases where third-party applications conflict with Adobe Premier Pro. Applications can be in any category, including browsers, games or background services that consume resources. Look for anything that you think is causing the problem, exit it and restart the application. If the problem disappears, it means that the application caused the problem.

There are two things here: third-party applications that conflict with Premier Pro or consume CPU resources so that the requirement of Premier Pro is not met and the application crashes.

  1. Press + R, type taskmgr in the dialog box and press Enter.
  2. In the Task Manager, search for processes that you feel are contradictory. Right-click and select Finish the task.
  3. You can also check the right corner of your taskbar. You can search for notifications about an application running in the background.
