Arma 3 access violation crash

after having tried everything, only short of reinstalling windows, ive finally given up and decided to write here.
ive said it to "crash always", however there is a caviat to this, i have been able to play on an infantry only tdm server just fine.

so from there i could make some logical deductions to it being vehicle related.
i seem to crash anytime i sit inside a vehicle and it moves/starts

but for some reason, i only seem to be able to recrate this in multiplayer, in the arsenal it works just fine?, which leads me to belive maybe it could be particles or something similar? anyway

if you have any idea for a solution, i would be very happy, because playing arma 3 without vehicles, is a bit eh?

Thank you for the report. Could you try to remember if by any chance the crash is related to a specific event? Were you doing a specific thing when it happened or it is just a random crash in multiplayer?

"tried everything, only short of reinstalling windows" - I am still going to attach the possible solutions here just in case.

thanks for the quick reply
anyway scratch that, i crash regardless, it just takes longer on foot

some more specific information.

i seem to crash instantly when a vehicle tries to move. Type of vehicle does not seem to matter, as stated before it only seem to be applicable in multiplayer. Ive tried some 10 servers with no mods of course.
on foot it seem a bit more random, but i think its mostly when i interact with anything be it menus or items, im not too sure. however i did crash when i excited out of the map, after placing a marker.

first i thought it would be the amd rx 5700 xt card that made the issue, since the drivers where hot garbage, but switching to a gtx 1070 didnt fix it so, at this point im somewhat at a loss

some of the fixes ive tried includes

updating security info for the arma folder and the docs folder eg admin rights
tried using both the -malloc=system and the -profiles parameter fixes
rolling back gpu drivers, trying new gpu entirely.
windows corruption fix
c++ uninstall and reinstall

Not for now. Problem is that your dumps show that it always crashes on a different issue. Meaning it is hard to pinpoint what is causing it as it is not just one issue. Though this might be specific for your rig. Does this issue occur in the Editor?
