Bug where cannot load into game, then 5-6 players in game!

We kindly ask that you complete the questions below. With this information, we can add it to our database for investigation.

Issue Description:

Three games now I have started them, at the loading screen where all the players are sitting in the ship. But it does not load. Waited 3-4 minutes, never takes that long otherwise. (I think one or two of the times I had used the windows key around the time of initiating the game to check something online, if that helps)
This is one bug I am reporting. The other, more interesting bug, only happens AFTER this.
Then, I Ctl/Alt/Del and end the game. Boot back up and it says I have a game in session. I re join the game.
When I rejoin, the BOTS that were in the game stay. Two of the times it was 5 total players (1 extra bot) but one time there were 6 players (2 bots). Only 4 of them show up in squad, not always the actual players. The bots stayed for the entire mission.

Steps to Reproduce:
[Please add the steps that can help our QA department in reproducing the issue. For example:]

  1. Load screen bug as stated above, will not load in ship.
  2. Close game forced (ctl/alt/del)
  3. Restart game, and rejoin game.
  4. Extra players now in game (bots)

Mission Name (If Applicable):
At least two different missions. Do not recall
