I have downloaded PSO2 with Epic game launcher as well as steam and have the same issue on both even after clean boot. I have checked my registry for startup apps, and my task manager startup tab, as well as uninstalled any apps that conflict with game guard (citrix workspace was the only one, no apple products or other tweakers, network analyzers). Checked BIOS settings.
Windows 10 is fully patched version 20H2. Using a geforce 1070, latest drivers, over lay turned off. Using an xbox one controller with the microsoft USB receiver. I've also deleted the game guard folder and let it re-download. Please advise next steps for troubleshooting.
