Steam Crashes On Rust Startup

I really enjoy rust, but I have been having a major problem for about 2 weeks. Every time I would like to play, I have to completely re-install the game, which is a major inconvenience . I also have to run the game in development debug, which isn’t a big deal, but I have realised it is much more buggy (also steam will not close from Windows Task Manager after the problem happens, and will not shutdown a.k.a I have to manually shut it down). Any help with the problem would help. I have tried everything from another post a couple of years ago on the same problem (http://forum.facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=1320402), and the help there is just a temp fix.

Do you have any sort of crash log from Rust or Steam when they crash?

Where would I find that? I can only find a networking log inside the Rust file location.
