Problem with LPX trying to re-scan all plugins, then crashes

Last night, when trying to open LPX (for the first time in a week or so) it started re-scanning all my plugins (it said 505 total to scan) then after about a minute or so it crashed. Then, try to start it up again, and this time it says 306 total plugins to scan, and again after a minute it crashes. If I abort the scan, LPX will start, but of course none of my plugins are active.

 

The two things that have changed on my system in the last week:

1. I upgraded from OS X 10.10.4 to 10.10.5.

2. I updated my ilok with several new licenses and updated the ilok software to the latest. The ilok software has been exhibiting some strange behavior since the update - like showing my ilok has having zero licenses, even though they're there and other DAW's see them.

 

Any ideas on why it suddenly needs to re-scan all my plugins, why the number of plugins seems to change, and what I can do to get everything back in good order? Is this a case where I should trash Preferences? If so could someone specify the filename and path of the file(s) I should trash?

 

Thanks.

Ok thanks so much for your help. Yes I did try and catch that when it crashed but I could not tell - the list was scrolling very fast as it crashed and did not appear to hang up on any one plugin. I'll see if the above fixes it.
