Okay. I was on the phone with tech support for almost two hours. We tried uninstalling, reinstalling, the whole shebang. Nothing worked. He didn't think it was caused by the pace software because of the point it was crashing in the load-up(it had already been approved by the iLok).
I might still have Driver
Verifier enabled, I'll double check that. Did some searching, enabled DEP and now my system doesn't crash anymore with ProTools. Instead, the program just closes because it cannot open. It gets stuck on the plugin screen, so I might try uninstalling all those or disabling them. Thoughts??
