I went threw alot of trouble shooting from some of the member here at 2K that keeps telling me it had to do with out of date drivers for a video card or sound card.These 2 driver would not affect the CPU and make it stake up shut down the program.They keep looking at the Exception Code: c0000005 and was not looking at the BEX. BEX was the key to causing my problem.So I went and talked to a worker at Microsoft.Here what he had to say.

Be sure and check with the game's maker's support and their forums
Often BEX errors are caused by Toolbars such as Google, TrendMicro
and others. Are you using any 3rd party toolbars in IE? Cause and fix is same for Vista and Windows 7.
What antivirus/antispyware/security product do you have on machine?
Include any you have EVER had on this machine including those you
uninstalled (they leave remnants behind which causes issues).
Start - All Programs - Accessores - System Tools - IE with no Addons
- does this work better?
IE - Tools - Internet Options - Advanced Tab - click Restore Advanced
Settings and then click RESET - APPLY / OK
IE - Tools - Internet Options - Security Tab - click Reset all zones -
APPLY / OK
Close and restart IE and/or IE with no addons
Start - All Programs - Accessores - System Tools - IE with no Addons -
does this work better?
IE - Tools - Manage Addons (for sure disable SSV2 if it is there, this
is no longer needed but Java still installs it and it causes issues - you ever update Java go back in and disable it again.) Look for other possible problems.
Windows Defender - Tools - Software Explorer - look for issues with programs that do not look right. Permitted are usually OK and "not permitted" are not always bad. If in doubt about a program ask about it here.
Could be a BHO - SpyBHOremover - Free - standalone program, needs no
install, download, UnZip and run. Also not all BHO's are bad, some run toolbars and features you have added. http://securityxploded.com/bhoremover.php
Also get Malwarebytes - free - use as scanner only. If you ever
suspect malware UPDATE it and then run it as a scanner.
So today I uninstalled Steam,Sid Meier's Civiliztion V spybot,made sure I had know other antivirus programs running on my pc.The one program I just disable it.I then installed Steam,Sid Meier's Civiliztion V then tryed the game out and it worked.I think sometimes people that think they know it all should listen a little more.It was not outdated drivers,it was my antivirus program messing with the game.And keep in mind any program you are running that is a add-on could interfear with the game.
