Sol System load indicator goes to about 85% and hangs. The warp lines are choppy like fps is too low, but the fog in the middle moves smoothly. Tips shown at the bottom also appear to work fine. Task Manager shows STO as not responding, and CPU usage is 100%, though it occasionally drops to 99% or 97%. I m running in windowed mode, but had the same problem earlier running in full screen mode (default set after install).
I'll get nettest and check my ports, and put another reply with my dxdiag attached in this thread, but seems more like a recursive algorithm problem. Never know, though.
