Did you check that the md5sum of the Avidemux installer matches? Such severe crashes are often results of hardware failures. In this case re-installing the OS won't fix things for long.

The Windows crash report is useless, but the Avidemux log (%localappdata%\avidemux\admlog.txt) might be helpful, but really check the integrity of the installer first.

Hi, thanks for your help..I checked the md5sum and it matches what the website says it should be. Under localappdata I do not have a folder called avidemux? in your opinion what type of hardware failure could cause this program to stop running?

If the folder has not been created, then the crash happens very early in Avidemux startup process.

I'm not proficient in hardware, and there is not exactly a lot of information about the issue that forced you to reinstall the operating system. It may be related to faulty mass storage including cables, faulty RAM or even to power supply.

Anyway, I don't think that Avidemux might be responsible for this access violation crash.

Some things to try:
Maybe run the installer with admin rights.
Unpack a nightly and copy the contents to a user created folder (eg C:\Avidemux) then run avidemux as a portable.

To run as a portable just rename avidemux.exe to avidemux_portable.exe and execute it.
