Q.  What are the best memory settings for Adobe Premiere CS3 on XP?

A.  

The Adobe knowledgebase has a big article here:
http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/329/329147.html

But comes down to this:

Minimum Paging file size: <your system memory> + 12 MB Maximum Paging file size: <your system memory> * 2
Even with that it still crashes for me so I do the following to make it crash less often:
- Get lots of memory! - Obviously, stop all other applications - Make a custom batch script to stop all unnecessary services - eg:
net stop snmp net stop apache2 ...
- Run your custom script before running Premiere - Unmount Samba shares - Render things as you go - If an action (eg Export via Adobe Media Encoder) is going to take a long time make sure the screen safer doesn't kick in.
