UE4 crash at startup

So yeah it simply will not start without crashing and i get the “EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION reading address 0xffffffffffffffff” error. I cant even get access to the project library without it crashing. Ive reinstalling the editor and my graphics card driver and tried the regedit solution but still nothing. On some days it randomly does work but majority of the time it doesnt. The issue is also the same with UE5.

does this happen with a specific project or all projects?

All projects. It happens when I start Unreal 4. I dont even get the chance to click on a project. I didnt put the entire crash report earlier so here is what I get…

"Unhandled Exception: EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION reading address 0x0000000000000000
