    Can you please elaborate on this a bit more?
    Does the console give up any error messages?
    How many processes are you running?

    Have you tried reinstalling it? Maybe refreshing the sdk content. Try it and than tell what happens.

    I am not sure. Well if it's not there you can always download it and install it again.

    Have You Restarted Your Computer Yet? That Helps Fix 90% Of All Problems On Windows

    Also, Are You Doing Unusual Things In Hammer When It Crashes? (Carving Toruses, Etc.)

    Custom models/textures should be in the tf2 folder, and thus not deleted when uninstalling.

    But it cant hurt to make a copy of your map files, or they might get deleted.

    Hmm. I'm going to hazard a guess at it being a memory problem. How much memory do you have?

    Hammer is a gpu hog, try updating your graphics drivers. Can't hurt.
