Adobe Premiere: Trash Preferences

Trashing the preferences is a technique used to help identify and solve a wide range of software issues. For example, if you find that your project files are becoming corrupt, you may find that trashing your prefs may fix the problem.

NOTE: This procedure will, of course, reset all your preferences to their defaults. You might like to make a note of your preference settings before you do this, so you can manually restore them afterwards.
