Ive reinstalled twice. pretty much same issue "OPTIMIZE : scanning optimizable games " and " HARDWARE : waiting for scan to start". the last install it went for 5-6 hours . this time ill let it go all night haha. not really funny as it really sucks 


@wesmaximus - Have you tried checking your firewall/antivirus? Or opening the client as Administrator?

So I let it go all night and when I got up it was complete.. I guess it takes time. but it did not take that long before. either way its good now thanx. 

@wesmaximus - Alright thanks for letting me know. If you notice it's a regular thing, let me know. It can/will take longer if you have lots of games installed, especially on multiple drives. However, it shouldn't be longer than 30 minutes.
