The game won't launch for me anymore.

The game won't launch for me any more.
I'm not sure what happened. It played fine last night but then this morning the game simply won't launch anymore. I log into the launcher fine but when I hit play the game just sits and sits in a windowed mode state with a black screen until it finally says ffxiv has stopped working. This is sometime immediate and sometimes it takes 5 minutes. I uninstalled and reinstalled the game to no avail. Same issue as before. Any help that I can get on this would be appreciated. Thanks

Here is my system information. (Also posted on the official forums. Just covering my bases)

One thing to try is to turn off your antivirus/firewall software temporarily to see if it is blocking the game access to the internet, or blocking one of the files from executing.

Delete the game and reinstall probably easiest way to fix the issue.

Might suck having to go through the process, but if a file got corrupted or somthing that won't let it start, there is no repair tool that I know of so I would just uninstall and reinstall
