I've been trying to install blender 2.79 on my windows 10 machine but it crashes on start up and shows the error bellow :

enter image description here

I tried changing the sound properties but it did not work, I updated my graphics card drivers, I tried installing a previous version of blender (2.78c) but I kept getting the same error, I tried installing the 32 bit and 64 bit version but the problem persists, I uninstalled every instance of python i have installed, deactivated my firewall... I even tried debugging it and i got this

enter image description here

I also tried the --factory-startup option but i got the same results as the debug case so i tried using the latest build version with --factory-startup enter image description here This is trully frustrating and I really need it for work so any help would be much appreciated.
