Workstation and Player GUI freezed when host clipboard has image on Windows 10


I found a strange problem, when there is a image on my host clipboard (a image, not a image file) and back to VM and click some text box, the workstation (or player) will get freezed for a while and consume a lot of CPU, but the VM continues running when workstation GUI freezed.

Reinstalling VMware Workstation, re-adding the VM or deleting USB controller doesn't help.

Windows version: Windows 10 2004

Workstation/Player version: 15.5.5

Guest OS: Windows7 x86 and latest Kali Linux (Both have the problem)

Guest OS has the latest vmware tools.
