SFM keeps crashing

I've downloaded several models from the page, all of them from the SFM section. While on SFM, i can add any model that came with it, but as soon as i click a downloaded one, the program freezes and crashes to the desktop. No error message box shown, it just closes itself. I read on other sites that a possible solution is to actually recompile the models, but i have no idea how to begin with. Anyone knows if this is the actual solution to my problem? How to if that's the case? If not, what should i do?

Crashes can mean one of a billion things, so I'm just going to list a few possible solutions. Make sure your computer is good enough to run SFM. Cheap laptops usually don't work. Make sure your computer's drivers are up to date. Make sure your virus scanner is up to date. Make sure your Virus scanner isn't interfering with Source Filmmaker. Make sure you don't have a virus on your computer. Make sure you installed the custom models correctly. Uninstall them if necessary. Verify Cache.: (In Steam, right click SFM, select Properties, go to Local Files and click Verify Integrity of Application Cache. See if that fixes it.) Revert to an older version of SFM. (In Steam, right click SFM, select Properties, go to Betas, and select one of the older versions) No guarantee any of these will fix it though. Which models are you trying to open?

It is actually, i can run it flawlessly with, example, the TF models.

They're up to date. check.
Make sure your virus scanner is up to date. Make sure your Virus scanner isn't interfering with Source Filmmaker. Make sure you don't have a virus on your computer.
Triple Checked this one. no problems.
Make sure you installed the custom models correctly. Uninstall them if necessary. Verify Cache.: (In Steam, right click SFM, select Properties, go to Local Files and click Verify Integrity of Application Cache. See if that fixes it.) Revert to an older version of SFM.

I will reply about this later, since i have stuff to do right now. Also, i will try installing other ones (some from here, and others from other pages) to see if it's the models itself or a SFM problem
