    CC 2015.5 / OSX 10.11.6 Massive Instability


      Hello Forum,


      About two weeks ago I updated CC from 2015 to 2015.5.

      At the same time, I updated OS X from 10.10.5 to 10.11.6.

      I'm running an early 2013 15" rMBP w/ 16bg RAM, 2,8GHz Intel Core i7, 512 SSD and NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M


      Since the update, I've been unable to run ANY of the CC apps for longer than a few minutes.

      Something in my current setup is causing massive, frequent Kernel panics (around 10 a day) which the system is very slow to recover from.

      They happen while I'm running CC.

      I haven't noticed them happening when I'm not.


      I have a time machine backup from April of this year, and have since rolled back my system to 10.10.5 (Yosemite) and CC 2015.

      The crazy part is that the Kernel panics are still happening.


      I would be very grateful for any advice as I am mid-project and this is a nightmare from the depths of hell.

      I have error logs, if they would be helpful.


      As far as drivers go, should I update anything? Roll-back anything?

      Would there be a benefit to doing a complete blank slate reinstall?

      Is this possibly a hardware fault from system fatigue.


      Is there something that lives deeper than a system restore that I need to clear (a video cache or something)


      As I said, I'd really appreciate any help or advice.
