    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?
