Cubase 9.5 constantly crashes

I hope someone might have a tip that will help. I am having a problem with Cubase crashing about every hour or two. When it does crash, I get a message that Kontakt has stopped working, then the crash. So the problem might actually be Kontakt.

When I only use VSL instruments, I never have a crash, ever. The problem occurs when I open Kontakt instruments, especially Spitfire Symphonic Strings. I have had the performance monitor running when this happens, and only using about 36gb of my 48gb of memory. CPU load usually is running in the 65 to 70% range when it happens. There is a big spike in CPU load at the moment of the crash.

Here are my specs:
Windows 7 pro 64 bit
Intel i7 960 with 8 threads at 3.2 ghz
Ram 48gb
All drives are SSDs

Any tips or ideas of what to do?

Ill watch this for developments....i had so many crashes (though more on OSX) during my 9.5 demo period I just didnt buy the upgrade. I was using a combo of VSL and Kontakt 5.81(i would have to look up the exact revision)....

After holidays, I see they have their demo fro 10 ready....and i have new (since the demo) Coffee Lake hardware....
