I have had issues with Simplify3D (3D printing program) randomly freezing during startup. The solution, which while it works makes no sense, is to uninstall the Realtek audio drivers and audio console and use the regular windows sound drivers.
This issue appears to be related to a library or something related to gcode creation, since it also solves a freezing problem in Vectric Aspire/Vcarve where the software will freeze as soon as you switch to 3D preview mode or try to generate a toolpath preview. Removing the audio drivers and rebooting also resolves this problem.
