Why won't Quicken Load Every Now and Then?

Why does my Quicken completely hang starting up near the start of every so often? Here's a picture (https://1drv.ms/u/s!AtWnsymKn5hRiGn_iZjRLEpX_EWc?e=sOffQp). The window just sits like that, unresponsive, for hours. Task Manager shows Quicken not taking any resources. I have to kill the window using Task Manager and restart Quicken several times to get it working.

I'm using Quicken Windows (32-bit) on a 64-bit, Windows 10 (build 19044) machine.

I've already tried validating and super validating the files. But it happens with different files and therefore the problem is not related to the data file.

    If you aren't already, I suggest you access the Quicken files in a folder on an internal drive and not allow other programs to access the Quicken files at the same time (for example, Dropbox).

    If the issue persists, I suggest you perform a clean uninstall, install and update.  If you haven’t already, you may want to review: https://www.quicken.com/support/using-qcleanui-uninstall-quicken

    I'm already using the data from a local folder. I uninstalled and re-installed (you know, the usual solution to any software problem nowadays). I had to manually delete Program Files\Quicken. It's running now. We'll wait and see if it happens again. I'm guessing it will since there's no reason why a new install would change the program.

    Thanks.
