HP Omen refuses to Start (Error 0xc00007b)

HP Recommended
OMEN by HP Desktop PC 870-2XX
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My computer refuses to start Omen Control. My lights array slowly changes through the entire color spectrum and it's a bit annoying. Whenever I try to start it it gives me the error "HPOMENCont.exe: This application failed to start correctly (Error 0xc00007b). I tried uninstalling the program and reinstalling it from, as well as the HP event utility, but it still doesnt work. Also tried reinstalling the .Net drivers and still no luck. Any advice?

If the issue persists, is recover the original application from the recovery manager: Click here for instructions to retain the original Omen controller.
