Windows 10: Personalized Settings is stuck Solved

    Personalized Settings is stuck


    I just ran Windows Update and all seemed well, I rebooted as usual but when I logged in again i just have a black screen with a small white window that says "Personalized Settings (Not Responding)". If I Ctrl+Alt+Delete I can get the Task Manager up and it says Windows Explorer is not responding. So I shut that down and the box goes away. That's all. I can Run New Task and open Explorer but then I just get the box again. Anyone seen this? I saw a few mentions on Google but nothing that helped.

    Try running sfc /scannow in command prompt as administrator.

    I had this happen today on the restart after a cumulative update had installed. I pressed the Esc ​key and that got things working normally again.

    I have two suggestions to try. One link I saw said it was caused by trying to connect to wireless and failing after an update. The fix was to switch on flight mode and then turn it off again..connect back up to wireless. Apparently that can clear the problem.
    The other suggestion is to press CTRL-ALT-DELETE and sign out. Then simply sign back in and that can sort out the problem too.
    I had a weird problem the other day too regarding a cumulative Windows Update. After the Update when I tried to shut down my laptop it said a restart was required. After the restart it was still the same..restart required message on the shutdown screen...even after 4 attempts. So I went into Windows Update itself and it said restart needed. I restarted from there..problem solved..weird!!
