    I ran into an issue where i can play EQ on a fresh install but once i exit the game and then come back it hangs just after server select and before the character select screen.

    Try adding launchpad.exe & everquest.exe to your firewall & antivirus exceptions /whitelist.

    Other things to try:

    Right Mouse button Click the EQ Icon, select Properties then compatibility then put a check in the box for "disable full screen optimizations" hit apply then run as administrator the first time you log in

    Run a file check from the EQ Launcher

    Check what Graphics hardware you are using & uninstall the old drivers & re-install the latest WHQL drivers for it or a new copy of the current drivers if you already have the latest ones.

    Thanks for the help Skuz. It turned out it was the full screen optimization that was causing the issues weirdly enough.
