    I did not know where to post this but I had to share this with you as This is
    something that I recently discovered that has given me a huge relief
    in regards to application performance .
    Just the fact that our hobby is largely audio based this may help your performance also .

    If your computer has more than one audio device such as onboard hdmi ,

    sound card , video card with hdmi applications that are audio oriented could be
    adversely affected .
    As many of you know I use Adobe after effects almost daily .
    I have been having issues with Ae locking up and crashing for quite some time

    and Nvidia ( my video card mfg ) says it is an adobe problem and Adobe says it is an Nvidia kernel issue . <<< Greek right !

    Well through some chain of evemts I stumbled on a thread in some forum
    a fella had posted a similar issue to mine and it was suggested
    that the Op dis able all but the primary audio device .
    I learned that Aduio devices when installed default to location 0 <<Kinda dumb
    if you have more than one gevice defaulting to the same location .
    However . I tried this suggestion and the monkey has been removed from Ae crashing .
    I also noted a huge performance increse in general over my entire system.
    I am no authority on this matter just letting you know my recent experience with app crash and a resolve .
    I am certain this issue would have implications on many other applications
    performance also .
