Failed to initialize Chromium Embedded Framework!

That’s the error I get whenever I try to launch Garrysmod on the dev branch. It prevents me from launching the game unless I switch off of the dev branch.

Before this started happening, I joined some shitty TTT server that autplayed a loud ad right upon joining, so every time the map would switch, I would use task manager to end all of the chromium related tasks.

I’ve looked high and low on how to fix this and as far as I know, there’s nothing on this issue. So, anyone have any idea on how to fix this?
