Hey. So I don't know what changed from before I tried to update to after, but when I tried starting it i get this error. I've checked the antivirus settings, uninstalled malwarebytes (windows defender was disabled at the time) and tried running/reinstalling it but nothing changes. I can't get a report/debug file because it can't open. I don't think I have anything that can interfere with that and what I did have I uninstalled and tried again. I really need this program seeing as my laptop is at about 100 without it and the fans never seem to kick up above 500 ish

Sorry, but what do you mean exactly? And what system is that?
ok, so I set the fan speed to 4000, then eventually (it seems like only a 30 seconds) the fans spin down to what sounds like only a few hundred 500 to 600 and I have to click set manual again.

That's most probably because the firmware takes over and tries to enforce its desired speed.
You'll either need to configure a Custom Auto mode, or setup the Respin.
Check other threads here, it's been discussed a few times.
