Regardless of the thread topic (and I know I'm kind of rolling off topic here and I apologize), it's still baffling to me the amount of people having so many problems with this game. A part of me is starting to think that this game is the Windows installation test version of the Crysis thing from back in the early 2000's.
I mean, back then, the phrase "Can it run Crysis?" was overused because way too many computers out there had crap hardware and Crysis was pretty much the bar to reach for them. This game, and this may be my theory, instead of hardware, it tests how well your Windows installation is running on your configuration. And so it punishes people with funky registries, funky drivers and a lot of programs running in the background and things half installed or whatever. I spent some time repairing computers and I've seen what people can put their computers through. And it seems we can most likely use this game to test if someone installed W10 correctly and if they didn't mess with it. Or if at least their hardware/software configurations are a good enough match for the game to live in their PCs.
And why I'm thinking like this? Because of my own experience with this game. Both my W10 installations are running pretty well. I don't clog my PC with useless crapola to start with Windows nor play my games with 876553485 background applications started manually, nor with 47 firefox tabs on, and Discord, and Twitch, and twitter, facebook on the side, and whatever other modern app out there people use to feel cool about their PC use, and I'm on top of maintenance and updates for both my computers (Now, I'm now saying OP is having problems because of this, but something is definitely up with his PC. Drivers CAN be an issue for some versions of games as well. I've seen that happening in some cases).
Basically my PC's auto starting programs are Windows itself, it's anti virus, and some hardware monitoring stuff (like MSI AfterBurner and stuff like that). Everything else is opened manually when needed, and closed when not needed. I also don't use "speed up my PC" programs nor registry cleaners because those are proven scams that can actually break your installation. And lastly, I practice safe browsing to try and minimize risk of getting malware. This has gotten me to being able to play most games with no issues. And if an issue happens, I first look at my own configuration to make sure my PC is at it's best to handle the game before trying to seek support.
As an anecdote, the other day my desktop PC uninstalled this game after a Windows update package. I noted that this update broke something called Game Services. Before doing anything with the game, I made sure this Game Services thing got updated and that I had no other red flags with my configuration. I reinstalled and I haven't had any problems with the game since. The Game Services app can be found through the MS store's list of installed apps. It's apparently something that gets installed by default, but as I now know, it can break. At least fixing was just a click away in my case.
Anyway, again, I'm not accusing OP of being irresponsible with his PC configuration. Maybe the whole thing is indeed a lack of compatibility with the hardware and software he has. And if that's the case, the solution may be out of his hands. BUT, if he knows his PC isn't the cleanest thing in the world, he can start by turning off programs and having his PC run as light as possible.
