TC freezing after Windows 10 feature update 18.03

Hi all, 

We recently updated our remote server and since then TC is freezing (see screenshot) every 2 seconds I see a circle near the mouse arrow (seems like a background process running). 


I don't have anything running in a background and I restarted the server twice.

I have TC updated to the most current version and not experiencing this on my computer.

There is a machine specific setting in TestComplete for Windows machines that have the Windows Store applications (Windows 8 and later).


Under Tools | Options | Engines | General, Uncheck the box for "Enable support for testing Windows Store applications".

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.
I love good food, good books, good friends, and good fun.
