Sketchup crashes for no apparent reason

Sketchup keeps crashing on me for no apparent reason. completely at random, in both version 14 and 15 that I have installed on my pc. I don’t even have to use the program, it just crashes by it self if I have it open and use a different program like gmail. I have turned off the hardware acceleration and use maximum textrure size to no avail. I have not installed any new plugins since a couple of months back and it has been running smooth up till now, when out of the blue it has become quite useless as it crashes within 2-3 mins of use.

Look for and remove a program call, if it is there.

it was and it worked. Thank you + waves of gratitude…
