I recently upgraded my PC with a clean Windows 10 Pro install. Forza Horizon 4 works fine, but Forza Motorsport 7 freezes whenever I enter the Video Settings or Messages tabs.
I noticed that the resolution is set to 4k (3840 x 2160) although my gaming monitor only supports 1440p (2560 x 1440). Since the game freezes, I can not change any of these video settings. Still, you can enter races and everything run smooth. Is there a config file you can edit manually? Or what could cause this freezing?

I've disabled Xbox, Captures, Game Mode, etc. in Windows Settings.

I have the same problem as of today, Feb. 10th 2021. I noticed a Windows 10 update yesterday... sigh.

Have you found a solution to this problem? It's odd and I've tried lots of things that haven't worked.

Completely reinstalling the game worked for me and the game is working 100%!

Yes the 100GB download wasn't fun but it happens.
