Why do i keep crashing all the time?
Just recently, today infact Unreal has started crashing on me all the time on the most random of things, i will simply click on a static mesh from the content browser to drag it into the foliage painter and it will crash and it even crashed when i tried deleting a folder that had no files in it... so if anyone could give me some insight that would be great.
my pc isnt exactly terrible i have a 6 core intel cpu, 32gb of ram and a gtx980TI

Alright, first I'd like to explain what I know about whats going on:
Your graphics card for some reason is having a difficult time with UE4:
This is pretty much saying that your video card got reset during something UE4 was doing and didn't recover fast enough (from what I can tell). So, UE4 closed down.
Now, in regards to what to do about it, this is the only piece of information I can find about this specific issue:
My suggestion is to start with that. Go and get the latest video card drivers (if needed). If they aren't needed, it may be an issue with your card itself.

Hey, my ue4 was also crashing at random times (I even tried earlier versions and those still crashed) ;In my case i think it probably started to happen when I upgraded to Win 10 pro from Win 8.1 pro, and it kept happening even after updating the windows 10 version, and reinstalling unreal and it also happened on new projects. One time I formatted the partition that had windows installed and reinstalled it (on the same partition) using the media creation tool (if I remember correctly, I chose the option that doesn't keep my files); after that, my pc had win 10 pro installed again and even on the latest version; later, I installed ue4 and when I ran it it didnt crash, and to this moment (it was like a week ago) it didnt crash yet (except for an issue with a blueprint of mine, which I already solved), so maybe you could try that.
