for 3 or 4 days I've been trying everything I can to log into Star Trek Online from updating EVERYTHING to downloading it from different places and reinstalling the game.
I found a link where someone else was having an issue with Display Fusion causing Star Trek Online to crash while trying to log in through the game launcher. he solved it by closing Display Fusion and when I did the same it solved my issue to.
Display Fusion is a program that let's you have more than one background when displaying more than one monitor, and a bunch of other display features. I suggest anyone having issues logging in to close any programs that effect their display.
