Chain-crashes to desktop

I've had a repeating issue the past few days, which usually occurs at random either when zoning, or opening a new window (most often on the fleet). It'll first crash me to desktop with no warning, then when I try to log back in immediately it will just crash the game yet again.

The workaround I started using for this is waiting for the system to automatically log out my character, since it doesn't consider it logged out for several minutes, then I log onto an alt, then log out and back onto my main character. This workaround solves the chain-crash, but it's really starting to get on my nerves having to use this more than once a day on average since the patch.

--on an unrelated note, I've posted less than 3 times a month on average on the forums since the game has gone live, most issues I've resolved via the CSR bug report system, so when I post the facts I don't expect any of my threads to get deleted and a warning issued to me. Anyone who wants a conflict with me will get a bloody one.

5 times in the past 24 hours, and yes all of my drivers are as up-to-date as it gets, I have a pretty high end system. No history of repeating crashes to desktop until 1.2

Having some serious issues myself. Recently bought the game, so i don't know how it'd work pre 1.2 patch, but i'm having serious crash issues on login, and ingame freezecrashes. I've updated all the drivers, and re-installed the launcher :/

Pretty frustrated...

I'm also getting repeated crashes to desktop since the 1.2 update. Hopefully it will be fixed soon !

I further refined my workaround for it, it won't let you log into an alt during an infinite chain-crash to desktop until your character is automatically logged out you chain-crashed on. You don't actually have to log onto an alt, just select an alt then wait for it to auto-reselect your previous character logged in when it completely logs you out and breaks the chain-crash.

It's still EXTREMELY irritating to have this happen 5-10 times a day, apparently totally at random.

I don't know if it's happening because of the patch as this has been happening to me for weeks now. Played all day Saturday without a single crash. Sunday must have crashed at least 6 timse.
I bought a brand new computer for this game that has all updates (windows, drivers, etc..)

Customer support has been very helpfull, but they can't seem to isolate the problem for me. They have given many suggestions, but nothing to stop the crashing.

I've sent them my dxdiag, client logs, and launcher logs, and no word yet. All they suggested was making sure all my drivers were up to date, and that hasn't helped matters any.
