I have been posting about this problem for months now since 1.4 came out. Before then I NEVER had a crash to desktop. Since 1.4 it's every hour. I will try one of these tomorrow and report back!
I am very excite to try this! I really hope it works since we can not count on the dev team to fix this!
I've only been playing since 1.3 and my random CTD issue started just over a week ago. I know some users have had the issue since launch, it was resolved for some in 1.2 and for others it manifested only in 1.4.
Also if you can tweet this thread to @SWTOR so we can get it turned into a sticky that would help a lot of people, including myself.
