Calibre won't open after downloading newest version

After downloading Calibre version 3.45.1 I got this error message when opening the program:
Python function terminated unexpectedly
'utf8' codec can't decode byte 0xe4 in position 10: invalid continuation byte (Error Code: 1)

Deleting calibre and downloading again doesn't work, I still get the same message. What do I do?

Try running calibre from a command prompt like this:

calibre-debug -g

and post any output you see there.

On further notes, I use Windows 10, 64-bit, I have tried to delete C:\Program Files\Calibre and C:\Program Files\Calibre2 and then re-install and i have tried to run the program as administrator, but the message is still the same.
