See attached for system logs but no crash was ever detected for what ever reason.. OBS just hard core locks up no response I have to task manager end task and restart it.. I have never had this kind of issue thinking its related to current Intel chipset.

Update Here is what I found... After doing some testing with --portable mode and running it out of a folder rather than the installation things run much more smoothly.. I must admit that there could have been plugin issues with the current installation that I wasn't aware of at the time due to the fact OBS just updates and adds features.. Which is awesome thank you guys for your hard work! So if you running into this issue I recommend downloading OBS in a zip file unzip it onto a folder inside your desktop create a shortcut for the obs64.exe and at the end put in --portable.. Use only that shortcut to run obs and in my case all my problems went away I was able to import the old profile and scenes no issues..
