My game has been freezing upon booting to the main menu ever since the Apex update was installed.
The game successfully loads the launcher, boots up to the splash screen, etc. As soon as the main menu appears, the problems begin. Everything seems to work for about 5 - 10 seconds: my mouse moves, submenus function, and so on. After this, the sound cuts out and the game becomes unresponsive. I still get some, stuttering mouse movement for a short period afterward, but the game interface is completely unresponsive.
This has not been 'graceful' freezing - my computer becomes totally unresponsive, and Ctrl-Alt-Del doesn't work. I have to do a hard reset every time.
My troubleshooting report and my last .rpt file are enclosed.
