Client locks up, won't start

I'm finding that every time the client updates, the program no longer wants to progress to the loading screen. I'll press the "play" button, but nothing will happen. I've had the same issue with and without anti-virus running. It typically takes multiple reboots before I can get into the game.

I'm using Windows 8.1 and AVG free.
 
I did a clean install of Windows 10 on my system; having the same issue so it's not caused by the OS. I'll try repair next time it happens.

You are correct it is not OS related. The issue occurs from the games files being corrupt/missing or were not installed correctly.

This happens from a number of reasons.
Was the launcher given admin permissions when downloading.
Drive health.
Anti virus interference
Or the launcher was unable to download the file from a short connection blip and skipped it

Windows defender can not be fully disabled without registry changes. You can only disable parts of it.
I've already given its reasons why it can occur
