The EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION usually happens when loading some native code goes wrong and that may happen if you are low on memory or if there is some hard bug somewhere.

However, what helped on other bugs was just deleting the .idea folder in a project, but in your case, it sounds like the entire IDE isn't starting anymore.

Therefore, I suggest filling a ticket with JetBrains as this is most likely outside the average scope of bugs. I am working with JetBrains IDE's for almost ten years and have never seen this one.
