It's quite likely that there is a problem with the User space on your computer. Please tell us whether you're working a Mac or Windows computer.
Try creating a new user on your computer and launch InDesign from that user. On a Mac, that would be done in the Users & Groups System Preference.
I work on both a mac, but in creating a new user profile will that migrate everything?
If you're an administrative user, you should be able to launch InDesign from any user. If it turns out that there is corruption (i.e., the crashing stops), you can move any data files from one user to another.
