Where did you download it from? Something odd with the date of that exe. Its a year old?

OKay, I just tested it on windows. I get the same dates so thats okay.

Try this; reboot. Then click start and type %appdata% and press enter. SHould open C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Roaming in file explorer.
rename bitcoin folder into something else. Try launching bitcoin again. Be patient.

One quick piece of advice: reboot.
Windows does a lot of file caching in its memory. If a corrupt file gets cached the problem may persist.
It blows my mind how much the Redmond-based operating systems love to be rebooted.

Did you per chance check the digital signature of the downloaded file?

Yes i have reset multiple times
And I have not checked the Signature do you know the hash or a signing key i can use?
Also I have Allowed it to run for about 15 hours now however it has not resolved.
