The crash is due to a buggy graphics driver and the only fix is likely to be installing a working graphics driver.  Sometimes some trick like starting the side view before opening models as described in the post you referenced avoids the problem, but usually there is no way to avoid a graphics driver crash other than replace the driver with one that doesn’t have the bug.
