Windows 7: APPCRASH with Game "Empire Total War" c0000005

Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit
APPCRASH with Game "Empire Total War" c0000005


I am having a problem with my computer game Empire Total War
At specific moments in the Game when I do a certain action the game crashes to Windows with the error message below and I am unable to get past this.
I have tried several options involving where the game might be the problem but it was working before and now I am wondering if the problem is in fact with Windows.
I have a genuine Windows 7 Professional 64 bit operating system.
Here is the error message:
Many Thanks for your help

Not really my type of area but I've found some information you can read on the Steam Forums. Sorry for not providing any information myself.

I am unable to find any fault with the game so far.
I think it could be an issue with my Windows but I am unable to find it.
I have followed the BSOD - Posting Instructions and attached the information in-case it's needed
