Workstation 15 Pro locks Host and Guest

I'm running Workstation 15 Pro on an updated Windows 10 Pro host. I've been testing Windows 10 Pro and Ubuntu 18.04lts guest oses and have the same issue.

Symptoms

If I try to drag an drop, the dialog window comes up and then the VM freezes and the HOST os needs to be rebooted. I have restarted numerous services and ended / started tasks as well with no avail.

When a guest locks up, the host needs to be rebooted to get it to work again until the next lockup. The Library shows the guest vm as running but start/stop section of the specific vm is greyed out and can not be selected.

Attempted fixes

I have fully uninstalled and rebooted several times to ensure that there is nothing left over, then downloaded a clean 15.0.3/15.0.4 installer and installed it again.

I have rebuilt a fresh windows and ubuntu guest with the same results.

I'm finding that with pass-through not really working, I'm not sure what to do to actually continue using vmware workstation for a dev environment.

Any thoughts on how to fix this?
