Blender 2.65 startup error

I have blender 2.64 and all previews versions working fine, when upgrading to 2.65 the application crashes with "Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Error"

I don't have any other language installed on the device, it's default english. On mac it runs fine, on Linux it runs fine, except on Windows 8.

The error message doesn't give much information on the reason the crash is happening, beside "This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way"

The console is reporting the following error: Fatal Python error: Failed to initialise Windows random API <CryptoGen>

Can anyone please shed some light why is this happening and how to solve it?

Thanks in advance

What happens with a newer version, like the recently released 2.68?
