Since yesterday morning (Wednesday 4th Feb 15) AE CC 2014.2 is crashing shortly after it starts up.
Projects can be opened and footage can be imported and/or viewed inside a comp but within seconds explorer warns of the same crash fault every time.
Any ideas, thoughts or solutions would be greatly appreciated right now - Jonathan S.

Did you install another software? Updated a driver? If so, you may need to reinstall AE so the correct versions of the MSVC libraries are installed or you may need to undo whatever change you made. Also check your cache settings, perhaps the cache is damaged or full and causes these crashes whenever you try to add more footage on top of the pile.
The only thing i can think of regarding new software would have been plugins for Cinema 4D - nothing for After Effects.
There was an issue with the drive where the cache folder sits but that was resolved. I usually clear the cache daily.
One thing i failed to mention was that the AE projects that were crashing were all 32-bit...
...so in the mean time (to get on with the work that needs doing) i found that if i avoid 32-bit project setups (stick to 16 bit)
within After Effects it doesn't crash so i might wait until friday evening before a full uninstall/reinstall.
Thanks for the advice Mylenium.
