Hello, I'm not very good with obs and recording software but i never had a problem before yesterday. I had been using obs for a bit and then my task bar wouldn't open so i reset my computer and reinstalled everything. Now, when i try to record i keep getting an error message saying an unexpected error has occurred. I don't know what to do, the same thing happens in obs studio. I have all my drivers up to date, my recording and streaming output is on x264, i have read countless posts online and have done everything they have said to do yet nothing works. I'm losing my mind and this is incredibly frustrating.
I don't know what to do. I have tried reinstalling the program like 3-4 times and that hasn't worked either. Below is the error I keep getting and my recording settings. I
have installed and reinstalled both C++ and still nothing. Any help is appreciated, I feel like I'm going insane trying to figure this out.

I FIXED IT!!!!! My computer also wouldn't update so i figured that might've been the issue so i downloaded the windows 10 ISO off Microsoft's site and manually installed the latest update via the installation media and after 3ish hours when it was finally done, obs and stream labs now record AND the NVENC is an option again.
