Have now worked 2 hours with Illustrator and indeed the problem seems to be solved.
Have simultaneously opened Illustrator and Photoshop. Everywhere GPU turned on. No crashes.
That is incredible that the eternal problem was solved. Simply incredible.

Have not crashed for more than 4 hours. So far so good :)

I would try:
Go into the BIOS and set the Intel HD Graphics. The monitor cable to the HD Graphics 4600 Include. Start from the installation USB, or tentatively normal.
Start Onyx, Disk Utility, Multi Beast etc. Install the older driver if it can not do otherwise.

Silly question but....how can i know if nvidia drivers are initiated?
If drivers do not initiate, add nvda_drv=1 to Clover config.plist under Boot > Arguments.

installed web drivers and coda. All seems ok but when i starts youtube videos or mp4 from the desk i have a strange glitch. (had this also in Mavericks)

System Preferences - NVIDIA Driver Manager - Graphics Driver.
It doesn't always tell the truth though.
If it says that you are using the Web Driver then you are.
If it says that you are using the OS X Default then you may actually be using the Web Driver.

In Terminal :
sudo kextstat

It should be obvious if you are using the web drivers.

Please can someone post an image on how will be the config modified with the nvda_drv=1?
I don't know where to paste it in the config.plist

The Kextstat where i saw "something about graphic cards" says this:

Thank you very much

It is a bad idea to edit config.plist with a text editor - It will corrupt it.

Probably the easiest way for you would be to use Clover Configurator :
