    I agree, I do the same thing. Like you, I used to build, sell and service NLE's, and train the users. I haven't bought an off the shelf system in over 20 years, as I prefer to use only parts I trust.

    In this case though, it is a laptop, so off the shelf is the only option. However, sometimes there are still better choices in these. I have always tended to shy away from brands like Dell, IBM/Lenovo, and HP/Compaq, as they often tend to do some funny things with the hardware configurations.

    It is possible to get defective out of the box for sure. I have seen it several times over the years, but it doesn't happen often.

    in other words, new means nothing these days

    For those of us that don't enjoy going to the opera, using it is the next best thing. ;)

    (Not all of us can see the most famous opera house in the world when we look out the bedroom window to fuel the desire to go.)

    Quite Possible. That's why I suggested a malware scan in post #2.

    Oddball problems, if not fixed by a reboot/reset, are often indicative of failing hardware or malware/virus activity, unless the user has been "under the hood" tinkering with stuff they don't understand. Since this is a new laptop, hardware failure is probably not the issue.

    can you do a scan of your PC with Malwarebytes free (but exit malwarebytes from taskbar when done, and do not set it to autostart with Windows)
    Anton, just as an FYI, I run Avast (free version) with no problems, and I also run Opera with no problems. If a virus scanner installs correctly and Win10 doesn't misbehave, BitDefender should end up being disabled automatically, leaving only avast, avg, eset, etc. as the running scanner. Seeing BitDefender still running is not normal and potentially a problem.

    Opera is just a chrome based browser that has a few nice features that chrome doesn't. I have been running it for close on 20 years (long before it became chrome based) with no issues.

    Been following this thread for a while now, and unfortunately I have no solution but was wondering, with so many possibilities tried and failed, would it not be possible that a bad ram maybe the culprit.

    As the crashing is not sonstant with exact operation could it be a problematic video ram or system ram address?

    So far this seems to be a pretty isolated case as I personally have no knowledge of anyone with Edius crashing.

    I was so desperately hoping that we fixed the problem, but it just crashed just now while trying to edit color in a video.

    I've attached a screenshot. I checked temp files last week and there was nothing from edius - no dump file - the crash report is the zip files i uploaded but its creating a new one now so i can upload that again, but the temp folder doesn't show anything from edius

    He might have to list out his environment variables to see where the TEMP and TMP directories are assigned to. Use 'System Properties' and then the Environment Variables option. There are two sets of TEMP/TMP - one for the user under which he signs on to - and the other one under System variables. They might be different for him.

    Hey Anton, when I search the TEMP folder for EDIUScrash.dmp it says "No items match your search'

    I don't have any folders in there named Edius of GV
    look for a folder inside Temp called Grass Valley CrashDump

    be sure you are in the correct Temp folder

    UPDATE before I had turned off the fast start in the windows settings, but I missed the step somebody else suggested about disabling fast start in the bios

    I disabled that then launched Edius and added monotone to an 8 minute video compiled of about 200 clips and it paused for 10 seconds but did not crash..

    hopefully that is the fix but I will keep you posted

    I should be doing a lot of video editing this week and next.. I would still like to figure out where my crash log files are...

    thank you everyone so far.. hopefully this is the solution but will keep you updated
