Hello all, I am posting here because I cannot find any answers to my problem.
About 2-3 days ago RStudio stopped being usable. Code runs in normal amounts of time, but the IDE itself is randomly freezing, sometimes for over a minute. The cursor in the editor is frozen completely, text doesn't appear when I type, and I cannot click on any buttons in the GUI. Sometimes it takes several minutes for RStudio to startup, and most of the screen is white. I have been using RStudio on this computer for the past 4 years without any issue. Base R works great, so I don't think it is an R issue itself.
Turning off my internet connection seems to make RStudio run normally again, which is surprising, but also problematic when you are trying to research, write, answer emails, etc.
I have tried deleting my entire R/RStudio installation and starting over with the newest version, but that made no difference. It makes no difference if I am using packages or not.
Anyone have any ideas that I can try?
For reference, I am using R 3.6.2, with RStudio 1.2.5033-1 on a Lenovo with Windows 7. As best as I can tell my OS hasn't updated recently enough to link it to this problem.
