The game is running flawless yet I'm getting this error every time I play the game, what can I do to resolve this?

Verify the files.... the arrow next to the play button in uPlay or in the properties of the game on steam.

I have tried a few of these and so far none have worked, as for the save game solution what do I do here, backup the save game delete it then run the game, then do I add the save game again after? Disabling the uplay overlay says it will also disable online features of the game which for me is not a proper solution to the problem, could this be down to faulty hardware?

you have to try each step until you find the cause of the problem, about saves, this is to inspect if the crash is caused by your saves, so you backup ,delete them and run the game, if the game ran normally and you were able to play then your saves are the problem, contact support and provide them with your save files so they can pass on to the team to investigate.

for UPlay overlay, no it wont disable online features rather than not showing a popup at top-right corner when you unlock an achievement nor you will get a notification when someone from your friends messages you, its only visual effect nothing more, as an example, if a friend messaged you while in-game, you will not get a notification in-game that you got a message but if you Alt+Tab then you will find the message waiting for you in UPlay, same goes for achievements, if you unlocked it, it will be recorded but you will not get a notification that you did.

However, care to post your system specs to make sure you are not under min requirements?

Why do I not have a verify files button on my Assasins Creed unity? I have it for my Far Cry but not for Unity

@noobfondler
did you buy unity from steam ? if you did you must verify it through steam... do you have sweetfx running as that can cause problems... I seem to have some new options :D

Remove the acu.exe, empty the trash too. Then verify again, it should restore the file and hopefully it works again. (You can also leave a copy of the file on the desktop as backup)
