AE 23 crashes as soon as I switch to another application

for about a week now I'm having issues with AE 23. So I'm working in AE 23 and I have another application open in the background (e.g. Chrome or Premiere). Once I click to open up the other application, AE will crash Windows and the system reboots. It exclusively happens when switching away from AE and not from any other software so the problem has to be with AE. Not sure what's going on since it wasn't an issue before and suddenly it is. It started happening in AE 23.3 (which was running fine before). I then downgraded to AE 23.2 and AE 23.1 but the issue persists. Downgrading to AE 22 seems to resolve the issue but this is not an option for my current project. I also downgraded my Nvidia drivers as suggested by Victoria some time ago ( https://twitter.com/FakeGreenDress/status/1634250027978858497?s=20 ) but no luck. I'm on Windows 11, version 22H2.


Attached you'll find a log file that was generated the last time AE crashed my system.


I hope there's a solution to this!


Best wishes,



EDIT: I should note that it does not always happens when switching to another application. But very frequently, so probably every 4th or 5th time I switch to another app. And since I switch apps regularly that's crashing Windows roughly every 10 minutes which isn't a very nice way to work. 😉
