    Task Host Window stopping background tasks

    I have been getting a lot of "not responding" errors lately, mostly with my video editor. When I "Restart" I get this:"Task Host Window stopping background tasks" with this path: "Microsoft/windows/device directory client/registry Device".

    What does it mean and is it related to the "not responding" errors I've only recently started getting?

    It means that a process is hung up and Windows has killed it. Sounds like your video editor is the problem.

    I think your right. I contacted my IT service and they told me the graphics card needed updating. I thought that fixed the problem but later today Premiere began to lock up again. I had worked for several hours, there were a few unusual issues but nothing serious. When I finished I clicked the File menu to "save a copy" and the spinner started spinning, 2 hours later it was still spinning and I had to go to the Task Manager to shut it down.
