SONY CLIP browser preview crashes on PC

ANYone have this problem? Sony clip browser 2.5 and 2.6 both crash on trying to preview a clip on my PC, NOT a Mac. . . It has never happened before and was a stellar performer until who knows what happened ( Oh the joy of computers) I completely uninstalled the program and reinstalled, rebooted, etc...Same Same. Disk repair..reboot..uninstall,,,.everything that usually works. It will transfer files from one hard drive to another just fine but will not PREVIEW them. Hit preview and the whole program closes down, It doesn't freeze, it just shuts down. Gone. That is the main feature I used this program for, to preview and edit clips.

H e l p
aloha,
Wayne Z

No problem with tgis on my PC, I run XP, Visat, Win 7 & Win 7 (64 bit) ClipBrowser works fine on all systems.

It sounds like you have an application that has a conflict or else you may have a faulty memory module.

I can also drag the clips from the browser right into my Edius Pro editing bins no problem. Clip browser just closes down when previewing.
hmmm

applications will sometimes occupy the top memory register leaving the base memory for other applications etc. This is why I mentioned a possible faulty memory chip. Run a memory checking application and check it out. Do a google search for relevant software.

Thanks Vincent,
memory checked out fine.
mystery preview/play glitch still there.
One of my programs must be messing with it.

had a weird crashing issue with OTHER editing type software that used the "overlay" when i replaced the video card to a ATI 4890. stooping overlay was a workaround. because overlay should still be supported on THIS car, i assume it is some driver issues and that i probably need to reinstall the showl freaking system.
anyways it is possible that it could be some sort of video issue also.
for tests, only ONE program can use an overlay at a time, so if you want to see if it is an overlay or not type of problem, steal the overlay with another program. Like a video player, or even the winders media player will work in overlay (as set in advanced options)

then after piddling with that kinda change, try running the video card in "VGA compatablilyt" mode, and see if it crashes then, that might provide some sort of clue to IF or Not the video display device could be effecting it. then go from there with the other 101 possibilities.

uninstalled a few programs and Clip browser still shuts down so I downloaded the XDCAM 1.0 browser and it works fine.
less features but...I can at least preview the clips.
