MY LR 4 CRASHES AT OPENING. I have removed all catalogs, created a new one (which solve the issue temporarily) and reinstalled the application, but still, when I am trying to open the newly created catalog, it crashes, the only solution I have so far is to recreate a new catalog everytime, which is not an option as I lose all modifications... Please help me I am about to lose faith in LR!!

1st step, trash your preferences file using these instructions: http://www.lightroomforums.net/showth...

2nd step: uninstall LR and reinstall using a fresh download from the Adobe website.

I have done both...no luck. I have now backup my computer to a previous version with Time Machine, before the issues started. It did the trick, I am now working on a backed up version of the catalog. However, I haven't closed LR and tried to open it again yet...
