(Ive had Exception Code: c0000096 too on a different file I tried)
I have installed Win 7 three times now in case the first couple of attempts went a bit daft on me but the same problem keeps happening with this and AVG (just tried the 2 for now)
1st try was install Win 7 then try the files before any updates - no joy
2nd try was to change the settings on the board from 'UEFI and Legacy' to just 'Legacy' (board spec says Win7 compatible) then reinstall Win 7 - no joy
3rd try was install Win 7, update using Automatic Updates and try again - no joy
After 3rd try I used some software called DriverEasy to check (used it before with no issues) and when I come to the Graphic Driver it happens, which leads me to think its something to do with that but im not sure.
Lastly I tried what someone suggested on another forum about changing the DEP settings which Ive followed but still no luck.
Luckily for me I have the current PC still working but the spec is rubbish in comparison so its not the end of the world.
Id just love to figure this one out, ive spent hours running updates.
Can anyone suggest anything to try or what it might be? Please?
