Do you have any plugins/scripts installed?
Can you post the info on the crash from Event Viewer?
I have quite a few plugins installed, but it's not crashing during loading. And it's not really crashing it's just freezing. The app runs smoothly until I click File. I can hover over buttons and they all highlight and respond smoothly. The app is fine until I try to open files.
The program AfterFX.exe version 188.8.131.52 stopped interacting with Windows and was closed. To see if more information about the problem is available, check the problem history in the Security and Maintenance control panel.

Hey if I wait 5 minutes it responds! But then if I close AE and reopen it, it freezes again so it's not a one-time thing.
And it's exclusively the file menu. I can open Help, Window, View, Animation, Effect, Layer, Composition, Edit... HANG.
"Fixed" it. If I disable the Start window in preferences (once it eventually unhangs) I can start the app and click file immediately. It's a bug in the Start window which only manifests once you click File.
