Blender crashing after startup

Hi, so I recently downloaded Blender 2.79 and every time I open it, it crashes 15 seconds later and freezes my computer. Any help is much appreciated!

My PC specs:

Windows 10 Pro x64
AMD Athlon™ X4 860K Quad Core Processor (3.7 GHz)
AMD Radeon R9 200
8 GB RAM

If your computer locks up then it’s likely a problem with the computer (hardware or drivers) rather than an issue with Blender. Be sure you have everything up to date.

Try downloading the Blender 2.80 beta and see if that gives you any better luck or different behavior.

Interesting, Blender 2.8 works fine - no crashes.

Actually Blender 2.79 works fine now aswell. I just had to update my drivers and Windows. Totaly forgot about that yesterday. Thanks for the help @Zoot
