Cant open/install Epic Games launcher

Ive tried what I felt like is everything, unistalled, made sure im up to date driver wise, and checked appdata and program data for existing files left, disabled all anti-virus’s and then reinstalled, still everytime I launch I get (please wait while we prepare your update) in a small window, so im stuck at even launching it after a fresh install, tried to install it on a dif hdd too. When its stuck there, there is a small network error symbol which says cant connect to servers, retrying. ive assigned a new ip to my pc, tried a dif DNS, restarted my pc and modem countless times. I don’t know what it could be everything else has a great connection it just epic games launcher that’s not working. got nowhere with customer service so asking you guys for any suggestions. ive also tried -opengl.
