Illustrator 2018 Crashes
I have Surface Studio, 32 Gig, Windows 10. Today I installed the CC Updates and now Illustrator crashes every 2 or 3 minutes. I uninstalled Illustrator and reinstalled it, but the crashes continue. Finally in desperation I uninstalled Illustrator 2018 and reinstalled Illustrator 2017. At least now Illustrator is stable.
I sure would like to know what to do to fix the problem. You know it wouldn't be a bad idea if one could reach support with install problems.
Please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org or any of the other support channels – https://helpx.adobe.com/support.html . Please give a reference to this post so that we can identify you.
Since this is not a generic issue that we can reproduce at our end, we will need someone to look into your machine to figure out what is going on here.

I'm on an iMac, 2017, running 10.13.2 - experiencing the same issue. I called support and they told me this was a known issue with files stored in iCloud, Dropbox, etc. However, I'm having the same issue even with files on my local machine (opening from downloads folder etc.)
Other Creative Suite products (2018 versions) seem to be working fine - it's just Illustrator. Would love a workaround because I used this program daily. I can create new files, but can not open files.
FYI - saw the request to create a crash dump - but I'm not getting any error, just the spinning wheel of death and the program permanently hung up until I force quit.
2018 Update - Broken windows 10 - crashes on start up... Thanks!
Mine crashes every time I try to create a new document or open an existing one... so it's unusable basically.

Hi Dear Frank
I even have the same problem with Illustrator 2018 it's crashes at the beginning of run
mine crashes or freezes constantly - also had to reinstall 2017.
Similar issues. When I use Illustrator‘s 3D effect, my mac pro just got crash, I used mac pro 2016
Similar issues. Horribly laggy, terribly long boot & save times, app glitches on save and window/view changes. May be Windows 10 or CC 2018, because my 2012 MacBook Pro running CC 2017 could edit the exact same project files smoothly and quickly.

Illustrator CC18 has been crashing about every other time I Save AS EPS files, and when it does, it freezes any other open CC programs. This is getting annoying...
My photoshop and indesign works fine after I did the update, but I have a problem with my illustrator 2018 update. How can I fix this? I have to work daily with my adobe programs. My laptop automatically sends reports if I have a crash. But I can't even open my Illustrator. Hope it will fixed very quickly. I work with a HP pavilion x360, i5. I will deinstal illustrator now and hope it will work fine after downloading it.
Please share crash dump with us. Steps for creating and sharing the crash dump is listed in the below link.
I forgot to add that Illustrator 2018 works fine on my windows 7 computer.
