Arduino startup ends in 'Initializing packages...'


ever since I tried to install the latest version of arduino, it freezes in de startscreen with the words ‘Initializing packages’…

The debugger gave me the attached report…

Could anyone give me a work around?

Systemspecs also added in attachment…

thanks in advance
