Windows 8.1 freezes when installing Veracrypt


Hey guys,

I just did a windows reinstall a couple hours ago. Was installing all software that I use, until it came to veracrypts turn..

My PC crashes while installing pretty much in the same spot all the time. I attached image, after clicking next it loads for a bit and freezes each time.

I tried downloading an older version, same outcome.

What could be the problem?

I have no clue, since I just reinstalled windows, so thought it would run smooth as new.

Please help me out here, I have important files encrypted, but can't access them now because of this! :(

Veracrypt-x64.sys causes my pc to crash all the time..

I even tried asking my friend to extract veracrypt on his pc and send me the folder in .rar

When extracting the PC still crashes when it starts extracting Veracrypt-x64.sys

How can I fix this?

Please someone help.
