    Stuck on "Validating and updating playlists and properties" screen

    Hello everyone. I've got a problem with Rainbow Six Siege which made me unable to play during the past days after the "Mid Season 1 Year 2 Reinforcement" update.

    What is the problem? I'm stuck on "Validating and updating playlists and properties" screen.

    Most of the time, it happens right after starting the game. However, If I ever manage to get in game, I can play only one or two rounds before going back in the main menu and getting stuck again on "Validating and updating playlists and properties" screen.

    My PC specs:
    OS: Windows 7
    Processor: Intel Core i5 3330
    Memory: 8 GB Ram
    Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GT 740 (1 GB)

    What I have tried to do in order fix this issue:
    - Verified integrity of game files;
    - Updated driver cards;
    - Reinstalled the game;
    - Restarted Steam/Uplay/computer;
    - Started Steam/Uplay/Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege as Admin;
    - Went to the game directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege\download ; and deleted two folders, as it was said in previous threads: "ShopItems" and "addons". Funny thing that I noticed is whenever I start the game and get stuck in the "Validating and updating" screen, it always download the folder "ShopItems" again, but not the "addons" folder;
    - Tried to change DNS server addresses (TCP/IPv4) to 8.8.8.8 as Primary DNS and 4.2.2.4 as Secondary DNS (and vice-versa);

    Anyone knows what else I could do to solve this issue?
