Happens when I create mask on layer and then switch back to paint brush. I get small "loading" icon and thats it...frozen. 
Its a brand new computer, I tried different display drivers. also tried to change drawing mode (photoshop settings). This problem came with the latest update (2015.1.0 was ok, but sadly its not available).

You say it is crashing, but then describe it freezing - which is it doing?
Those are two very different behaviors.

Do you have third party plugins or extension panels installed? Have you tried disabling them?

Alright, new discovery. Its not about tools. its layer masks. I just deleted layer and photoshop automatically jumped to the bottom layer which had mask and done...frozen again.
