    Windows 10 won't let me access anything

    Hi everyone,

    Had to borrow someone's laptop to post here. Yesterday my (brand new) laptop auto-updated, and I'm not sure if it's entirely related or not, but now I can't do anything with it.

    I can still move the cursor, see options on right-click, and it does register me clicking on files or program icons - but nothing opens. I can't access files, programs, the task manager (tried all the shortcuts I knew of), or the settings. Specifically, it lets me open the settings window once, but freezes when I click on the "updates" section.

    I can't shut it down or restart from the Windows menu, except sometimes if I do a shift + restart but it'll get me stuck on the blue "please wait" screen forever, so I don't have any way to go to safe mode or access troubleshooting options. All I can do is hold the power button to shut it off, but it doesn't come up with the login screen on startup afterwards - just goes straight to desktop.

    Is there any way this can be fixed? I use this computer for work and have a deadline mid-week, I really didn't expect a one-month old laptop to become useless this quickly. Please, please help?

    Welcome to the forum. Do you have restore disk or recovery partition you could reset it with. Being new can't you return it have you tried plugging in another mouse
