I recently started using a plug-in, Auto Align by Sound Radix.
This is probably not a popular plug-in for Cakewalk since it is used almost exclusively for aligning out of phase drums tracks, but it is marvelous for that purpose.
However, it seems to be a/ the factor in numerous crashes I've been having lately.
The screens start flashing and rotating randomly between track view, console view and plug-ins, either followed by a crash dump, an automatic reboot, or manual reboot.
I have a similar problem with Waves plugins showing up with blank user interfaces.
I've tried Disc Cleanup, Disc Defragment and reboots but the problem persists.
I think there was something else that can be done but I can't remember.
