Which version of Lightroom are you using?
Which OS version are you using?
What does the detailed crash report say?

I can't check the current version, but it's the newest one I updated just a couple hours ago.
I'm using windows 10.
It just stops working, responding. I added an image.

Hi Eima, have you tried restoring your prefs after the update and quit/relaunch Lightroom? http://blogs.adobe.com/lightroomjourn...

Most of the time I can't even go to prefs. But I completely uninstalled and reinstalled LR. So yes, I had. Doesn't help.

The preferences file survives an Uninstall/Reinstall.

Do this to reset your preferences:
1. Close Lightroom
2. Hold down [Alt]/Opt]+[Shift] and reopen Lightroom.
3. When prompted, Overwrite/Discard the preferences.

Does Lightroom launch normally after completing this procedure?

I'm using Lightroom 2016.2.1 on a 15" Macbook Pro (2013). The update has made Lightroom very sluggish (side, top, bottom panels very slow to open. 5-10 seconds.
Clicking on a photo in library view makes information such as photo number, rating, etc disappear. Using a library with only about 70 photos. And filtering navigation does not come up promptly. This is very problematic - makes getting my work done extremely challenging.

Reseting preferences fixed the launching problem. But now Lr is reallyyyy slow... Even though I have a "Badass" computer.
