SSMS keeps shutting down without any detectable pattern, usually within 30 seconds of opening the app. Any ideas on how to fix? Here's the error from the Event Log:

Delete your SSMS folder in "My Documents". It usually is called "SQL Server Management Studio". You will lose your settings, but any crashes should be gone (as i have experienced). If not i would recommend a uninstall/install of the latest version.
