I am experiencing a problem with the minecraft launcher. My problem is that when I launch minecraft from twitch app or overwolf app to play modded minecraft, the launcher opens, I click play, the bar loads, then nothing happens. No instance of the game lanches, yet when I check the task manager, it shows 3 versions of "minecraft launcher (32 bit)" as running. It lets me click play again, so I do, but it says an instance of the game is already running, and asks if I want to start anyways. I click yes, but it just does the same thing. It was working a couple of days ago, and now it is not. When I launch vanilla minecraft, the launcher works just fine, but when I go to play through the twitch app so I can play RL Craft, it doesnt work anymore.
I spoke to @ConorGarland, and he said :
"This issue may be caused by malware.
Malwarebytes ADWCleaner is an utility to clean a PC which is infested with malware.
Download it here: https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/adwcleaner
Run a Scan, remove any malware found, restart the computer."
After downloading and running, it quarantined and deleted HKLM\Software\Reimage in the registry. After a system restart, upon trying to launch the game again, the problem is still persisting.
Updated information: There is no error code given to me when this problem occurs.
