Mothur.exe has stopped working

Hi all.
Im working a MiSeq SOP tutorial and can get as far as “filter.seqs(…)”; I dont think the exact point in the tutorial is the problem as it used to crash earlier when i was still quite slow at entering the commands) and Mothur stops working. Specifically, the message reads “Mothur.exe has stopped working. A problem has caused this program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you of a solution if one is available”.

I have tried deleting all files and reinstalling but its the same fail point each time. Has anyone else had this problem? Any advice on getting around it?

Many thanks. Dave G.

Problem Solved!
I found the answer elsewhere on this site. Simply use few processors in the command.
