Illustrator V. 23.0 crashes repeatedly
Updated Illustrator to 23.0 on my Surface Studio running Windows 10 with 32 Gig of memory. It crashes frequently and seemingly at random. I can't point to any instance in particular - It's just random. The latest instance was I pressed CTRL + 0 to set the page at 100% and the program just went away. As with the other crashes I have encountered it isn't generating a crash report. It just goes away. I thought that GPU acceleration may be the issue and so turned it off. But, it didn't make a difference.
I uninstalled 23.0 and went back to 22.1 and life is back to normal.

I'm having similar problems when copy+pasteing, does not seem to be able to process the command. Lags and window flashes on and off like it's having a hard time.
On iMac here, upgraded to ADobes recommenden 23.01 "fix" and now I can't do anything.
"Recovered" files do not even open, an all is greyed out - went back to 22 too to get anything done.
Didn't matter what I was doing, it started crashing even on simple things: textbox, a simple line - and then suddenly - nothing works.
Bugs me so much they've marked this problem as "Completed" here on another thread addressing the same problem.
The UAC fix worked only for a day. Now the crashes are back. Sorry if I mislead anyone. Back to square one.
I'm running Windows 10, Illustrator 23.0. Same crashing problem. I saw that Photoshop 2019 was getting reports of crashing also. The Photoshop solution was to turn off UAC. I tried it as a fix for Illustrator 2019. It worked! The crashes stopped.
In the taskbar search box, type "UAC".
Select "Change User Account Settings".
A window opens with "Choose when to be notified about changes to your computer".
Move the slider to the bottom, "Never Notify"
I hope this helps.
23.0 on my machine is also highly unstable, is nearly unusable--has crashed about eight times in the last three hours. I haven't noticed a definitive cause or trigger.
