Multithreaded rendering freezes game

This is one part bug thread and one part cry for help. After enabling multithreaded rendering, ESO now freezes on the initial load screen after several seconds. This is the pre-character select load screen. Repair does not seem to help. Is there a way to deselect the multithreaded rendering option from an .ini file or something? Or will I have to redownload the PTS?

    Turn it off at the login screen then restart the game that is what I had to do. I get the same crashing problem at the load screen when it is on.

    Can also be found in UserSettings.txt in your Documents folder. Setting is SET RENDER_THREAD "1". 1 equals multithreaded rendering on and 0 equals multithreaded rendering off. It was skipping the login screen for me since the game auto signs in so I was never able to change settings in game.

    Game does not freeze but is stuck on the loading screen prior to character select. Music is still playing and I'm able to move the game window around.

    Update: I closed ESO and the music was still playing in the background. I had to open Task Manager and kill eso64.exe so I guess it does freeze after all

    Intel i7-4790, Sapphire Radeon Pulse RX580. It doesn’t matter which settings are used I tried all the graphic quality presets, windowed, windowed full and fullscreen they all end up freezing the game at the load screen once I log in. And changing the graphics quality setting while the multithreaded rendering option is on will also crash the game client. Also, even if I alt-f4 the client closed I still need to terminate the process in the task manager in every case.

    When it starts hanging, the graphics card usage drops to 0% and one CPU core goes up to 100%.
