# Constant Crashes with Blender mostly from Materials [closed]

Windows 7 Pro x64 Blender 2.74 - 2.75rc2

I'm curious if anyone else has had this error with Blender?

Error: EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION


Where is the violation coming from?

I've have been having a lot of issues with crashes since 2.73, and recently it has come down to this error alone. It usually happens when I'm selecting the material menu, creating a material, and even deleting meshes with materials.

I did reload to factory defaults, and created all new userprefs, and of course created a new startup file to go with it. Other issues I was having went away after that, but this one crashing issues still happens, and quite a lot.

Here's my startup file if anyone wants to look at it.

I've really cut down on the addons trying to track this down, but it doesn't seem to be related. There is nothing before the error, just a simple:

Error: EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION


I'm hoping someone knows what this violation means, so that hopefully I can remedy this issue.
