    All apps locking up since build 10049 update


    I just wanted to post on here and see if anybody might be able to help me figure this out. I was enjoying the previous 2 builds I tried, but ever since I updated to 10049, I've been getting constant lock-ups and freezes.

    Here's one example of what happens:
    I boot up the laptop, log in, everything seems fine. I open Project Spartan, it hangs and won't load any pages. I open up Chrome, it seems to be functioning, but it won't load any websites either. When I mouse over the buttons, they change color as if the browser is working just fine. I can type pages into the address field (on both Chrome and Spartan), but when I hit enter, it doesn't go anywhere. I click start, settings...it opens the settings, I click update, it says it is updating but gets stuck at 5%. I try to open the network and sharing center thinking "hey, maybe my wifi is acting up", but the control panel will not load and gets stuck there. I can open task manager and it shows everything moving along at a couple% on the cpu for each running app, but nothing ever happens. I can leave it for hours and nothing will happen. I can click start, power button, restart, then look at the spinning restart circle, but it will never restart. It just hangs there and requires a hard power-off.

    Example 2: I start the computer and log in to windows. The desktop comes up, start will open once. I click settings, and a new task bar item pops up, but the settings app will not load. I try to open Spartan, or Chrome, and same thing, neither will load. I can open task manager. Sometimes if I close and restart explorer.exe, things will work again...for a little while, but usually they will lock up again.

    I have had times where the settings app is open, as well as a browser, and then everything locks up and you can't click on anything. Then the start menu won't open, Cortana does nothing, and I have to use the physical power button to shut it down.

    Something seems to be hanging, I just don't know what. When I check the event viewer (attached to this post), it looks as though just about everything that tries to run has an error. Right now, I'm in Spartan. I have rebooted 5 times to get this far. It seems to be running great at the moment, but next time I turn on the computer it will probably lock up again.

    Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.
