SQL Server 2012 Management Studio (SSMS) stops working and crashes several times everyday.

SQL Server 2012 Management Studio (SSMS) stops working and crashes several times everyday.
So far I've tried reinstalling SQL Server but no resolution.

Any ideas would be appreciated

I checked the event viewer and found this:

You don't need to reinstall SQL Server just because a fail in SSMS. Management Studio isn't the engine but a GUI for SQL Server.
Have you installed the SP2 for SQL Server 2012? You should also install the CU2.

Thanks Victor
I installed SP2 and CU2.  I also did a windows update and upgraded the The Microsoft .NET Framework to 4.5.2

It seems okay now.  I'm curious when I open SSMS the splash screen says powered by Visual Studio.  Where can I get more info on this?   I have VS 2012 installed (I also removed VS2008)

Thanks Very Much

The " powered by Visual Studio" is Microsoft's branding. I think it's because SSMS was developed on Visual Studio.
