Rust crashes when launches, and bug report tool pops up

Whenever I try to launch my rust lately, it always crashes, and I get a pop up from the AMD bug report tool that a driver timeout has occurred (picture attached) 

Rust was working fine as of November 21st, but, when I most recently tried to launch it (approx. December 24th), I cannot even get into the main menu. I get stuck at "waiting for background menu," then my game crashes and the bug report tool pops up. All other games aside from Rust work perfectly. 

I've tried to roll back my drivers, reinstall my drivers, reinstall rust, and changing compatibility settings, running as administrator, etc, and nothing works. 

My brothers pc loads rust just fine, and he has an rx 580, using the same drivers my pc. 

Does anyone have any idea on what might be wrong?

uninstall RUST and ALL its settings/savegames etc // make backup of savegames before (if there are any)
install game again - test!

read in RUST forum if other users have same error - maybe a RUST update is bugged, or AMD screwed up its driver for RUST - maybe a Game update can fix it etc
