Which version of Illustrator are you using? What operating system?
Also, can you share a sample Illustrator file that is causing the trouble?
Illustrator only manages to even open 2 times out of 10. It constantly fails, won't open, freezes and generally is useless and has been ever since it's been in Creative Cloud. I think it's atrocious that we are forced to pay for such a subtandard excuse for software. I am so sick of it. 22 years a designer here!
Sorry to hear about the freezing. This is not the experience we want you to have. I would request you to share a few more details like:
Also, try resetting Illustrator's preferences by following the steps shared in this article (https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/setting-preferences.html) and sharing your observations.
Disclaimer: Please note that resetting preferences will remove all custom settings, and Illustrator will launch with the defaults. You may take a backup of these settings from the location mentioned in the article.
Looking forward to hearing from you.

Sorry you're frustrated, but if that was a fair characterization of Illustrator, all us users were seeing those same problems. I work in Illustrator all day, every day, without a hitch for the most part. So please do calmly seek out support; it's likely there are solutions to your particular problems.
