I ran adwcleaner and malwarebytes and that appears to fix the issue. I was able to get minecraft to completely load to the main menu screen.
* WIndows 10
* Version 8 Update 241
* Minecraft 1.15.2
* I have reinstalled minecraft (several times)
* I have reinstalled java (several times)
* i have updated my drivers
* checked PC event logs and no errors are shown.
The minecraft launcher loads and when I click on play. MInecraft starts up and Mojang loading screen is there. It gets to about 85% loaded and then it just freezes.
The log looks like this:
[22:44:56] [Render thread/INFO]: Setting user: username
[22:44:59] [Render thread/INFO]: Backend library: LWJGL version 3.2.2 build 10

[22:45:09] [Render thread/INFO]: Sound engine started
[22:45:09] [Render thread/INFO]: Created: 1024x1024x4 minecraft:textures/atlas/blocks.png-atlas
I'm not sure what else I can try. It freezes in the same spot every time even after the reinstall.
