Watch_Dogs 2 hard freeze, cannot use ReShade after

After my first problem with ReShade has been solved (see this topic ), I have another worse problem...

I played Watch_Dogs 2 with my ReShade preset without problems for a few hours, but then the game hard freezed (no response at all, sound looped, had to reboot) and when I relaunched the game, it always crashed with this message:

If I remove all ReShade files, the game works normally.

I haven't been able to find the cause of this problem, but a complete reinstall of the game can fix it. But it involves a few hours of wait since I have to download the entire game again. I tried to verify the files, reinstall ReShade, erase my config files, but only a complete reinstall of Watch_Dogs 2 allows me to play the game with ReShade again (before it hard freezes again after some time)...

Here's my dxgi.log if this can help:

OK, I give up. ReShade seems to be too unstable with latest Ubi games...

First Watch_Dogs 2 with this weird hard freeze problem, and now Tom Clancy's The Division which crashes randomly at start.

Nevermind, I'll play those games with vanilla rendering, after all they're not the ones that really need heavy ReShade presets to be pretty. Their default visuals are great.
