Uncatchable exception

Since yesterday, every query I run results in a yellow information bar at the top of the query window that says

Query ended because an uncatchable exception was thrown.

There is a delay, then the query runs anyhow. It even happens with the language set to C# Statement(s) and no connection selected for this:

int i = 10;

I do have references to a number of custom assemblies set as query default, but I removed all such references for this query and still receive the error.

What's happening and how can I fix it?

    The issue went away after rebooting the computer.

    Unfortunately, this issue returned after a while. It's extremely frustrating. Again, even a query like "42".Dump(); causes this exception text to be shown before producing the expected output. The frustrating part is that there's a 2-5 second delay before my actual query starts to execute when this happens.

    If there really is an uncatchable exception thrown (StackOverflowException or AccessViolationException) there should be an entry in the event-log that tells you which one it is.

    If this happens often I would try to catch the bug with DebugDiag, however I would suspect a problem with your system in this case.

    @Ytrog Unfortunately, nothing gets logged to any of the Event Logs (Application, System, etc):

    In this case, I got the exception right now but the last logged event is from 10 minutes ago and is unrelated:

    Does the issue re-occur after rebooting?

    I have noticed weird errors where Linqpad gets into a state where nothing works. Sometimes the problems go away after I restart Linqpad and other times I need to reboot.

    On a few occasions after this has happened I get a message saying Linqpad needs to download some updates (for example EF). This may just be a coincidence, but I was wondering if perhaps the problems were caused by windows updating some part of the dotnetframework while Linqpad was running. Pure guesswork, but anytime I got into this state, a reboot has always resolved it.
