Hi, just new to all this and the recommendation was to used Electrum as a wallet.

After downloading, tried opening and message 'FATAL ERROR' appeared.

Error loading Python DLL 'C:\users\ASPIRE1\AppData\local\Temp\_MEl89402\python35.dll.
LoadLibrary: Invalid access to memory location.

This is probably an easy fix but I've tried reinstalling and other means but unable to get it running.

Is this a common occurrence or have I downloaded from a dodgy site (electrum.org)?

Any help would be really appreciated.

No. This is happening to almost everyone trying to load electrum on Windows 7 or Windows 8.1.
If you really need electrum3 then use a live OS or dual boot.

Else, redownload/locate your old version of electrum 2.9.3 and use that until the bug is fixed (as I'm doing).

Can you try installing "Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015" and running Electrum 3.0 again?
It may be a solution for this issue, but I can't test it because I can't replicate the error.

Thanks for the update, did the installation happen correctly and complete without errors?
If it did, then we'll just have to wait for the next version of electrum.
