How would I fix my IntelliJ IDE? It cannot open and re-installing does not work.

So I was looking around for some async solutions and I found one on github, https://github.com/electronicarts/ea-async

I follow the setup instructions for maven. Only to realize it didn't work (I didn't realize the last time it was worked on was a few years ago and I did not completely know what I Was doing). So I remove it and I use a different library, I finish that section of code, program works fine, and I close the launcher.

Next time I try to open it to work on the code it doesn't open. I try to launch the idea.bat from bin and it says:

Error opening zip file or JAR manifest missing : ea-async-1.2.3.jar

Error occurred during initialization of VM

agent library failed to init: instrument

I don't have much knowledge of agents and I've been trying to remedy this for about a day now. I went back and re-checked my project files for references to the library. I re-installed the IDE a few times now. Nothing seem to work. I don't know what keeps referencing it. Does anyone know how to resolve this? I am not really familiar with this issue.

While I removed the -javaagent argument from the vmoptions file within my Program Files, it persisted in my roaming AppData folder and that seems to be what the IDE was referencing, not the main bin. I believe this link explains what happened:

Please note that custom .vmoptions file created using 'Edit Custom VM Options' action has the priority over the original file in the bin directory.
