Gmod crashes when checking/redownloading addons

When I load up Gmod 13,the main menu loads,and then begins redownloading/checking/patching addons,and then it simply crashes. It almost always doesn’t give an error message,sometimes it gives a HL2.exe has stopped working,and sometimes even Steam crashes with it. I’m beginning to think that this may be because I have around 9 ingame pages of addons. Can anyone help me? I would supply an error log if I could,but I don’t know where they are located.

Alright,I THINK I found the errorlog:

This happens to me as well…

Try not to do the installation with the Steam Workshop open, the Addons folder open, or Garry’s Mod closed.

I tried deleting all the files in the Addon folder. Doesn’t help. Gmod will automatically redownload them,and there’s no way to stop that AFAIK. When it’s halfway the first or second addon it crashes. So it’s probably not the amount of addons
