Unable To Open OBS After Trying To Download Streamelements


New Member
I've actually had OBS for a while now (a few years), and this is the first time this has happened to me. I decided I was going to transfer from SLOBS to OBS for streaming as my friends said it would be easier on my pc, but when I downloaded "Stream Elements" my OBS hasn't worked. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling OBS and Stream Elements so many times but to no prevail. Every time it crashes before I even get into the program. It also has started doing this with other apps, such as Origin. I'm not sure if its because I hadn't updated my OBS since I first got it but that may be the problem? I also checked to see if there was something messing with my system and ran many scans for viruses, but it said there weren't any. The attached file is what shows up when I try to open OBS and Origin.

If anyone can help, it would be very appreciated!
