This kind of crash is usually caused by ZoneAlarm. Do you have that installed?

Yes, I fixed the zonealarm problem, but now I get an error saying I'm missing content/something/something/mainmenu, or something along those lines. Sometimes my game launches fine but the steam workshop version does not.

Please try to do "verify local game cache", and if that doesn't help, please post the entire log of the problem. Thanks!

It started working, but as I was playing I got a computer crash. After that I went to load my save and one of the saves was titled "XXXXXXXXXXXXX" (It was actually a square with an X in it but...) and when I put my mouse on it my game freezes and I get this message:

http://prntscr.com/4g0a4i

Should I try to delete all the saves in the saves folder?

Deleting just the one file that the screenshot mentions, should be enough to prevent the error.
