Live 8.3.4 keeps crashing..Help!!

I recently updated to ABleton Live 8.3.4 in mac osx Mountain Lion. Everytime i try to open Ableton by clicking on the app, I get the same error message that says" LIVE QUIT UNEXPECTEDLY WHILE YOU WERR WORKING ON THE LIVE SET TITLED UNTITLED PROJECT, WOULD YOU LIKE TO RECOVER YOUR WORK".  Then it goes on to just crash after that..

I uninstalled the update and reinstalled and got the same results..Can anyone help me figure this out..I start class on Monday and need this app to work..This is an official update of Live SUite 8 purchased from the Ableton website, the boxed version..

 

Thanks.

    Try repairing your disk permissions.

    Then pull out 3rd party plugins.

    Live 8.3.4 doesn't like Waldorf plugins on my machine right now.

    since i upgraded to live 9, i cannot use my tc powercore pcie plugins, waves 8 or waves 9 wont work and just to put the dot on the i, Live 8 crashes every single time i open it. I cannot work. cant even export my projects to work in cubase or nuendo. I am so pissed. 4 years of being faithful, waiting, and now this. neither 32 bit variant or the 64 bit variant of live works with my plugs. Before installing live 9, the only problem i had with live 8 was latency in larger projects, now i cannot even do anything. i reinstalled about 4 times each version of live and another 2 or 3 times each version of waves and tc powercore... result: one crash after the other. on my mac pro with snow leopard nothing from and with live 8 or 9 works anymore. cubase 7, nuendo 5.5, logic 9 and protools 9 open fine. but for some funny reason, since i installed this damn version of live 9, not one of my programs see my tc powercore pcie!!! what the hell is this?

    Sorry ableton, your shippment will go st8t back on monday.

    Yeah me too here.. But I'm on ableton 8.4.1 already..

    Only legal thirdparty plugin's but Live crashes because of several plugins, reinstalling etc doesn't work. And all my old projects won't even open, it immediately crashes..

    Upgrading to 9 might solve the problem, but come onnnn!

    Mac Book pro Snow Lion 10.8.4.....

    I'm getting incredibly frustrated trying to write music in Live.  All it keeps doing is crashing... I've sent 5 or 6 crash reports in the last hour...
