From your videos, I am going to assume you have run Rainmeter and installed (or created) skins before this issue started. If this is the case, your problem is most likely a bad plugin or addon.

Have you tried Rainmeter Safe Start? https://docs.rainmeter.net/manual/user-interface/#SafeStart

Basically all you have to do is install the very latest version of Rainmeter (not that really old version that comes with Win10Widgets!!!). Then just hold the CTRL key down while starting Rainmeter. It should remove any layout you have installed, and load the default skins (illustro).

From there, you need to identify the skin or skins that are causing Rainmeter to crash.

You could also try a clean uninstall: https://docs.rainmeter.net/tips/clean-rainmeter-uninstall/
You might want to skip the step of deleting your skins...

Did you try Rainmeter Safe Start?
https://docs.rainmeter.net/manual/user-interface/#SafeStart

Did you see this message box after holding down the CTRL key while starting Rainmeter?

Did you click Yes on that message box?

You could also manually unload all your skins. To do this, manually open your settings file. This is usually located in C:\Users\<<your user name>>\AppData\Roaming\Rainmeter\Rainmeter.ini. Open that file, and change any line that starts with Active=, and change it to Active=0. Make sure all sections are Active=0 (except the [Rainmeter] section). Save the file, and restart Rainmeter.

From there, you can load each of your skins one by one until Rainmeter stops. Once stopped, you found the offending skin! We can help from further once we find the bad skin.
