Hard to say, since that error code is a broad-brush "memory access" error .

Just out of curiosity, after you did the clean install of Win10, did you then restore files from a backup using a tool like Acronis or some other "image-based" backup software?

The first thing I would try is a clean install of Rainmeter (assuming you copied at least some files back from a backup). I mean really clean.

Entirely delete the folders:

C:\Program Files\Rainmeter
C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Roaming\Rainmeter
C:\Users\YourName\Documents\Rainmeter

Reboot

Download and install the latest release of Rainmeter 3.3 from https://www.rainmeter.net/

Does it then load Rainmeter and the default illustro skins ok?
