The error can prevent you from playing your favorite games like Fortnite and many other games that come with Steam, Ubisoft, etc. This error is usually accompanied by a combination of special character and numerals ( # sign followed by seven zeros and a numeral – eg. # 00000006).

1] Disable/Uninstall or Update RGB Software – A simple solution for this problem if the error message shows an executable name is to disable/uninstall or update RGB software. The software runs LED lighting on your video card or motherboard. If there are any LED lights on your rig, chances are this is the cause of the error.
