Short description of error

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Based on a (as simple as possible) attached .blend file with minimum amount of steps

I have downloaded blender on 3 devices, Windows Laptop, Windows Tablet, and a PC.
All three devices have had the same problem, the program runs really well for about an hour or so, but after some time it just randomly crashes.
At first, the crash happens every 10 minutes or so, but now it occurs every time I right click on an object, or try to add a modifier.

Please advise, thank you!

This is likely a known graphics card driver bug and unlikely we can fix on our end.

Please provide System info

Also, please check if using software opengl resolves:

If this is a driver bug, or we can't link to this to an error in Blender's code, the report may be closed as a driver error,
so please help us determine whether this is a bug in Blender or not.

We can not deal with bugs for which we only know that hey happen randomly. Please follow Campbell's suggestion about software OpenGL mode and if that doesn't help try isolating the problem, making it reliably reproduceable.

For until exact steps are found moving the report to archive.
