Trouble Installing PsychoPy

I installed Psychopy for the first time a couple of weeks ago and was able to launch it and play around for a little bit. After about an hour or so I got the below error message. I have since uninstalled and reinstalled PsychoPy several times. Now every time I install it starts to launch, but as soon as I exit the “tip” box I get the below error message and the program crashes. Any potential solutions?

Error code:
