ReSharper crashing Visual Studio 2017

ReSharper is crashing VS 2017. I can get it to do 100% of the time. I startup VS and load my solution. As soon as I try to do anything it crashes. I can work around it by suspending ReSharper, loading the solution, and the resuming ReSharper. After that, it works fine.

I've uploaded a the debug file: Output_3f60_2017-08-03_12-52-43-894.txt

As suggested in another thread, I removed Xamarin, but it did not help. I know that was for VS 2015, but thought I would give it a shot. Also, upgraded to VS 2017 15.3 and it still crashes.
