An Error Occurred while loading Obsidian. Error: File System timed out

I have downloaded version 1.03 for Windows on an up-to-date Windows 11 PC. Each time I try to install the application I get the above error after waiting for about 2 mins. I can select the “Reload” button, after which the application freezes. I have searched the forums for the Error and can only find posts related to Public Plugins for which I clearly do not have any as I am performing a fresh install. I have also tried installing with and without Admin rights and have re-downloaded the install file three times.

What I’m trying to do
