Crashing in VAB/Randomly around KSC

Question

I'm normally fairly good at troubleshooting issues but this one has had me stumped, i'm getting random crashes around the KSC and in the VAB but not while controlling an active craft (I can confirm it works for literally hours rock solid; i may have a KSP problem)

Also solar panels won't extend; which kinda sucks.

I was only able to find one crash log buried in various folders; the crash dumps aren't going into the main KSP directory as intended. Below is the most recent.

The game really likes to crash when you're going from one screen to another at the KSC. You're not the only one with this problem. Hell, my VAB locked up my entire computer yesterday from me plugging in a spare mouse.

So the VAB is just generally unstable? Hm

It doesn't usually crash in the middle of a VAB session. Usually, it's either while going from VAB to launch or reverting back to VAB after a flight. Similarly, most crashes at the KSC are when you select a building or go back out. Switching screens seems to have a cumulative effect: the more you do it, the slower and jerkier the game becomes until it finally crashes with an access violation.

That sounds a lot like a memory leak somewhere.

KSP is known to have a memory leak due to the way Unity handles RAM (the engine never releases any of it back to Windows due to the alleged performance overhead of re-allocating it again and again as demand changes). It always lagged out and crashed for me ever since I had it, but it was playable for hours on end for as long as I didn't revert to VAB too many times; since the 1.8 update, however, I have problems even starting the game to begin with because the minute it starts loading, Windows 10 memory compression kicks in and hogs the hard drive at 100% usage for 10+ minutes (which is ironic, considering that Microsoft claims the whole point of it is to not have to access the page file as often!), which causes KSP to lock up and refuse to let go of my screen, which causes me to be unable to bring up Task Manager for killing KSP, forcing me to hard reset my computer.

Granted, I'm running KSP with only 4 GB RAM.

My mistake. I meant 1.7.

And I ran the game today with Task Manager open on a second monitor. The results are here, since my game didn't crash this time and as such I don't want to muck this thread up.

My issue can't be memory; KSP crash log even says it's only 68%. I'm almost certain it's a mod conflict or just KSP leaking memory like it always does and eventually angering UAC and throwing an access violation.

Um... UAC has nothing to do with RAM. UAC stops programs from starting with admin permissions without the user's say-so while an access violation is a piece of already running code touching memory outside of what it asked the OS to be allowed to use, causing the OS to instantly banhammer it out of existence not only because it could break other programs or even the OS itself by overwriting someone else's memory, but also because reading someone else's memory is a security risk (since it could be used to steal passwords and the like).
