I experience system crashes or rather freezes since I updated to crimson 16.10.3. Yesterday I did update to 16.11.3 and the freezes persist.
What exactly happens:
At some point while browsing, Chrome stops responding. Programs in background i.e.: GIMP, Thunderbird, Firefox still work. After some seconds they also stop responding. Taskmanager does not open. Start Menu > Symbols grayed out, not responding. Full System freeze.
Only flipping the on/off switch on the PSU helps.
I haven't done anything specific to cause this freeze and wasn't able to force a reproduce. It happens when it wants to happen.
Furthermore, the Crimson software won't open anymore since 16.11.3. I had this problem already in the past but after updating some time later to the next version it resolved itself. Still it's annoying. I usually right-click the desktop to open it. Opening from the Taskbar doesn't work aswell. Cancelling the process via Taskmanager and restarting the Radeon Software also does not help
