Anki Not Responding On Startup

Running Windows 10 Education Version 10.0.19042 Build 19042

Anki will not start upon running the program, I am met with a white screen and a (Not Responding) response. I have previously had a version of anki that ran fine, but when I tried updating to 2.1.38 I was met with this error. Now no other anki versions work. :confused:

Seems like another program is trying to access your collection. Check if there is some synchronization app running on your system (OneDrive maybe).
