Power BI Desktop will not launch



I have tried to start Power BI Desktop (2.54.4970.761). I can't get further than 'Inizialiting Model' after downloading, it just stays there.

I have Windows 10 and 64bit. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall several times (also restarted computer). I also tried to download the 32bit version, but had the same issue with that. 


I tried reading threads on here for help. I do not have any "Ad-Aware Web Companion" installed.

My PC is Lenovo Ideapad S510p. 


Help please?
