I have exactly the same problem and the same error in the event log. Tried reinstalling the game, updating wondows 10, search for damaged windows files, also tried to shut down all firewalls, nothing helps.
The last thing that I didn't try is reinstalling windows but really ... that can't be the solution if everything else works absolutely fine and I'm not even sure that would work.
So I spent about 5-6 hours trying to fix this issue more then I played the game, and I don't want to play single-player.
edit: I actually found a workaround.
I went into the steam folder and changed the compatibility mode for the eco.exe to Windows 7 and to run it as administrator and it works now. I can join servers and the server browser doesn't crash.
After trying it is actually the compatibility part that worked, you don't need to run it as admin.
