MPLAB X 5.30 hangs when trying to open a project or when creating a new project

MPLAB X 5.3 Hangs when I create a new project.
Just after selecting the project folder location I click next and MPLAB X freezes up.
I have just found it also freezes when you select File>Open project.
Both times I have to kill MPLAB in the task manager.
I have tried installing older versions of MPLAB X (3.65 and 4.2) and the problem still exists there.
I looked online and some threads recommended the following, none of which helped.
I have tried getting the latest version of Java
I have tried disabling the firewall
 
I got so desperate I have even re-installed Windows and it didn't help!
 
I am using Windows 10 Pro 64 bit on a reasonably powerful i7 PC with 8GB of RAM so there shouldn't be any issues.
I have the XC8 compiler installed - not that I got far enough to compile anything yet!
 
The PC is pretty clean with very little installe as I just use it for lab stuff.
 
Has anyone got any suggestions?
 
FWIW I have attached a screen shot of each time it freezes.
 
In both instances this was as far as MPLAB X 3.65, 4.20 and 5.30 got before I had to kill it in task manager.

Thanks in advance!

    I think it's something similar to what happened to me, maybe cleaning the MPLAB cache solves the problem.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I have tried that and also tried to change the memory allocated from Java but still get freezing issues.
    It's really strange as the PC has been re-imaged from scratch and it still has the same error.

    Does this problem happen to you if you already have a project open successfully? I have formed the habit to always leave at least one project open in MPLABX before closing it.

    When you open a project in mplabx, quite a few things happen: a directory is created, and mplabx seems to try to go the network to find out if a newer version of the compiler is available, for two of these (not speaking authoritatively here, just from observation.)
     
    That suggests you might try creating the project directory in a "safe" place (on a local disk, for example, in a directory you know you have write privileges in.). And check the internet connection of the machine to make sure it's working, has the right proxy settings, etc.
     
    All just guesswork here.

    I don't connect my PC to the internet (the one I use for MPLABX, not the one I'm posting on).  When it starts up, it can't find any internet connection & just skips that part.

    I don't need the world to know my name, but I want to live a life so all my great-grandchildren proudly remember me.

    MPLAB X IDE v5.30 has SEVERAL issues, not just this.

    I recommend downloading an archived version and using that until MC fixes the issue(s). It's what I had to do.

    Here is a (direct, and hidden) link to the version just before V5.30

    Good point.
    Sorry for the confusion, I hadn't noticed that 5.25 isn't in the list there yet.
