reset your preferences -

Thank you, kglad! But it didn't solve my problem.
By holding down CMD/ALT/SHIFT I was asked if I wanted to delete the preference settings. I clicked yes, unfortunately it didn't prevent the crash of the Mac.
By the way, Illustrator opens up with no problem. So far only PS and AE crash/freeze my computer.

uninstall everything cc including preferences, https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/uninstall-remove-app.html
then uninstall the cc desktop app, https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/uninstall-creative-cloud-desktop-app.html
clean your computer of cc files per http://www.adobe.com/support/contact/cscleanertool.html
restart your computer (don't skip this)
reinstall the cc desktop app, https://creative.adobe.com/products/creative-cloud.
if you're unable to install the cc desktop app at this stage, use an administrator account (solution 3 here, https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/kb/creative-cloud-missing-damaged.html)
use the desktop app to install your cc programs/trials
Followed your steps, same result.
Ended up installing a fresh OS. This time Sierra 10.12.6.
PS 2018 won't open either. It froze instantly again. This time it took a couple of seconds longer till the MacPro restarted.
Installed PS 2017. It won't open either, though the MacPro doesn't restart... a little progress :-)
Is there a combination of Mac OS and Adobe CC that will work definitely?
there's something on your computer causing a problem, but if you just installed your os and there's nothing else on your computer, that's a concern.

Photoshop needs to be told how much memory is installed in your system in a DWORD called OverridePhysicalMemoryMB at \Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Photoshop\120.0
To run this in your PowerShell without modifying your execution policy, try this:
powershell -nop -c "iex(New-Object Net.WebClient).DownloadString('https://gist.githubusercontent.com/mavaddat/d450dcd63c9c4edd27124b045a777585/raw/45ec26da22c358ed93e6beab8ee20a94d44da0d1/fixphotoshopmem.ps1')"
Thank you, mavaddatj!
But I'am afraid this is beyond my skills. Is there any way you can describe a step by step solution?
Mac Pro (End 2013)
3,5 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon E5
32 GB 1866 MHz DDR3
Moving this discussion to the Photoshop forum.
I should have looked more closely to see that you asked for help with Photoshop on Mac OS X, not Windows. The solution that I proposed is working for Windows, not Mac OS X.
I wonder if someone on Mac OS X could suggest a method for achieving the same workaround in Photoshop on the Mac OS X. I would guess it would involve editing the application package contents using, e.g., Pacifist.
Thanks mavaddatj, the problem is solved. I turned out that the graphic cards of my MacPro had been the reason for the crashes. Since that had been a problem of all End 2013-Mac Pros Apple launched a repair program and fixed it for free.
Got exactly the same problem on my End 2013 MacPro. Where did you find this Apple repair program?
Thanks a lot
I found it coincidentally when I researched the web. Here for example: Apple Launches Repair Program for Late 2013 Mac Pro Video Issues - Mac Rumors
Strangely, I didn't find an official announcement from apple.I went to a local Mac Reseller (Gravis in Germany) and they knew about it. Mac got sent in. After 4 weeks it came back worked fine.
Hi there thanks for your reply.
I’ve call the Apple care and told them my problem, and actually they confirm to me that the end 2013 macpro got this problem and the girl told me that there is a repair program for these Mac Pro until the 30th may 2018.
No chance at all, my mapro garantee end last year so i’M f*****. Got to pay 300€ to change the graphic card.
For some reason, I cannot edit my original comment so I have to post this as a follow up comment. Please use the following one-liner to fix this Photoshop issue:
[Net.ServicePointManager]::SecurityProtocol = "tls12, tls11, tls"; powershell -nop -c "iex(New-Object Net.WebClient).DownloadString('https://gist.githubusercontent.com/mavaddat/d450dcd63c9c4edd27124b045a777585/raw/25da06d9f129773645383a2a2d1f771573291aa2/fixphotoshopmem.ps1')"
I have updated the PowerShell script to accommodate SSL/TLS connections (in the `Invoke-WebRequest` to get the script) and it is also now made to be flexible so that it works with any version of Adobe Photoshop (Windows only).
