Regular CTD after latest Update

hi all,

i know im going to get a google or search comment but I’m having issues since the last update more than ever.

CTD regularly I’ve tried changing live traffic, updating the store updating the programme updating graphics drivers clean install and booting in safe mode with networking. can just about get it to load up

i7 6600k
16gb ram
rx580 8gb (i know its just under recommended spec but I’m not after 4k ultra)

any suggestions, quick fixes anything just let me know and i will try it.

thanks in advance

as mentioned often in already same existing threads: have you tried to delete the cache ?

ive not seen that one?

delete the cache in the application?

There are quite a few threads on the forums where people are reporting crash to desktops and it seems there is no one single cause. Reports indicate that the ‘fix’ for one user doesn’t work for another user etc. Tracking down the cause is very time consuming. I suggest maybe using the forum search function to find other threads for this issue. If you wanted to be brave, even though it is time consuming, you could take the plunge and go ahead and reinstall windows. It might actually save you time in the long run. However, it doesn’t guarantee that it will solve your problem if the CTD is caused by hardware weaknesses (unlikely but possible) or driver issues.

To get you started, here are two links (Link1, Link2) to existing mega-threads about CTDs.

It would also be a good idea to check out the known issues post to see if you are affected by one of those.

For advanced troubleshooting, if none of the other fixes seem to work, then there may also be some useful information contained in this detailed thread: Community Troubleshooting Guide.
