Cubase Elements 10.0.40 Hanging on Startup

Hi Guys,
Hoping you can help.
Recently my Cubase has been taking over 7 minutes to startup.
It just hangs on the first screen and says “initializing”.
It often crashes and when it finally gets to the part when I can choose to open a project it still takes a long time to set up the session.
It’s only started to do this recently.

Computer specs below:
Windows 10 Home
Version: 1909
OS Build: 18363.720
Processor: Intel Core i7-7700 CPU @ 3.60GHz
Installed Ram: 32.0 GB

Hi and welcome,

Could you try in Cubase Safe Start Mode [Disable preferences], please?

If it doesn’t help, could you attach some of the crashes, please? Maybe there will be a hint in it.
