CTD After Passing The "Checking For Updates"

Are you using Developer Mode or made changes in it?
Brief description of the issue:

Everytime I launch the sim, I get to the “Checking for Updates” screen then eventually my screen will turn black then it will CTD. I presume the next screen is supposed to be the loading screen which I do reach occasionally but still the same results.
I got an error code on event viewer ONCE but every other launch comes with no error code:

Are you on the Steam or Microsoft Store version?
Did you submit this to Zendesk? If so, what is your ticket #?
Yes, I think its 116103,

Another thing I found is that whenever I turn off my ethernet/wifi adapter the sim loads perfectly fine
the moment I turn them back on my sim freezes then stops responding. After turning them back on I am back to the same initial issue at hand. CTD after passing the “Checking for updates” screen
