    I understand, when this problem happens do not click anywhere because it will make freezing harder to troubleshoot, but instead use keyboard only, there are 2 options:

    1. CTRL + ALT + DEL and then select taskmanager option
    2. CTRL + SHIFT + ESC to open task manager right away

    In both cases try to restart Windows Explorer process.
    You may need to prepare task manager before doing test by expanding default view to advanced view so that next time you need it you get straight to "processes" tab, which means minimum amount of clicking.

    There are other options for same purpose to try if above 2 do not work:

    Windows version 20H2 seems to have alot of issues, If you want a link to WIndows 10 Pro version 21H1 the absolute latest windows let me know. I run it and it is like butter. They fixed ALOT of previous issues.

    I tried today with the 21H1 Version from the official Microsoft page but the problem keeps going.

    Have you tried any or all of these.

    Method 1: Use Powershell



    Use the Powershell command to unfreeze the frozen taskbar by following the steps below:



    1. Press and hold the Windows logo key + R.

    2. Type powershell in the Run dialog box.

    3. Hit Enter.

    4. Type the following command line: Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml}.

    5. Hit Enter.



    Take note that you have to enable the Windows Firewall before performing the task above. Here are the steps on how to check if the Windows Firewall was enabled:



    1. Open Task Manager.

    2. Click More Details.

    3. Select the Services tab.

    4. Make sure that MpsSvc, also described as Windows Firewall, is running.



    Method 2: Enable the User Manager.



    A disabled User Manager sometimes results in a frozen Windows taskbar. To re-enable the User Manager, follow these steps:



    1. Press and hold Windows logo key + R.

    2. Type services.msc.

    3. Double-click the User Manager.

    4. Set the Startup type to Automatic.

    5. Hit OK.

    6. Restart the computer.



    Method 3: Disable Recently Opened Items.



    Disabling the recently opened items helps to speed up the list launch. To disable items that are recently opened, follow the instruction below:



    1. Go to Settings.

    2. Select Personalization.

    3. Click Start.

    4. Slide the toggle button beside Show recently opened items in Jump Lists on Star or the taskbar to turn it off.


    So It freezes upon startup right after a fresh install of Windows? im asking if it worked but then you installed a VPN or Other Antivirus software and then it didnt work ?

    Hi! I got this trouble... Using the previous version of Windows 10 (ver 2009) everything works fine. Every time I update to the latest version (20H2), either with the 2009 version from Windows Update, or doing a clean installation of Windows with the ISO downloaded from Microsoft's website, the taskbar freezes at Windows startup. ..

    I found 2 "solutions", but in both there is a problem, I detail them below ...
    1) Wait literally 5 minutes (having Windows on an NVMe this seems like an exaggeration, totally unfeasible). Waiting for this exact time ( 20 seconds) the problem ends and all applications load.
    2)Press the Windows key or click on the same bar, by doing this a sign appears in the lower left part of the screen where I can choose between "end process" or cancel. If I choose to cancel, it remains frozen until it reaches 5 minutes as I detailed in the previous point; but if I choose the option to terminate process, the taskbar starts working automatically. The problem with doing this is that the applications that have to start with the Windows boot do not open until I start them all manually (and there are quite a few).
    Attachment 322529
    TRANSLATE: The application is not responding. If you wait, the program may respond again. End process / Cancel.

    I leave a detail of all my hardware:
    -MOBO Aorus x570 Pro WiFi (rev 1.2).
    -Ryzen 5 5600x CPU.
    -RAM Aorus 4x8GB 3200MHz.
    -GPU GTX 1070 ROG Strix OC.
    -PSU EVGA 500w 80+ Bronze.
    -M.2 NVMe Patriot VPR100.
    -M.2 WD Green.
    -HDD WD Blue.
    -CASE Corsair 465x.
    Was this problem ever resolved ? I am having a similar issue with my 21H1 Build 19043.928 system .
    During idle times my system will occasionally freeze and I get the same small recovery window that you are getting.
