why is live 9.5 ALWAYS CRASHING?

how do i make music when LIVE 9.5 is always crashing?  i've been using LIVE since version ONE and only skipped one upgrade but this this version seems MOST unstable and unreliable.... i've sent 50 crash-reports in the last 2 months and never hear a word from tech-support. is there a list of plugs somewhere of plug-ins known to bug-out on LIVE? it can crash doing the simplest things and with only 2 or 3 midi-tracks and maybe 2 audio....it just seems that by almost 10 versions we'd have a stable DAW on our hands by now? anybody else experiencing similar instability?

    I had the same problem on my Macbook. On windows, no problems.

    But every time Live crashed it told me that a plugin was the cause.

    So i cleaned out my VST folder, re-installed fresh versions and re-installed Live 9.5

    Now, it works great!

    I can't get it working in both my laptop or desktop. Versions 9.2.3 and 9.5 will crash on startup when loading maschine 2. All my plugins are up to date. I had the same issue with different OS. Tried windows 7 and 8.1. The only one I manage to get working was 9.2.2 on my desktop running win 7; "only" on my desktop. On my laptop, it never worked. Shame, I can't even think of using it in a live performance. Now, I'm downloading 9.2.2 again... Forgetting about updates.
