  1. Unresponsive desktop on startup


    Hello I faced this weird glitch or don't know what it was but today I installed the KB KB4530684 update, Windows 10 1909 build 18363.535, everything went fine the update installed, windows 10 booted up, welcome screen came and my desktop came as usual after that. After using my PC for a few minutes I restarted my PC, windows 10 booted up, welcome screen came too but after that when the desktop came the icons were missing, the taskbar was unresponsive(if I hover the mouse cursor over it the blue circle keep spinning), the entire interface remained unresponsive for a solid 10-15 minutes like a blank desktop with the wallpaper on it and an unresponsive taskbar. After that everything started becoming normal slowly. Then I restarted my PC again when the taskbar became responsive and after that it didn't happen again so far. I checked event viewer for some error logs and saw some services didn't start/respond on startup which I think was the reason for the unresponsive desktop. But anyway till now I haven't faced it anymore everything working normally. I checked sfc/scannow and windows didn't find any corrupted files. Can someone shed some light on what it was and why it happened ? To me it looks like some sort of OS related issue not hardware. I am really confused as it came out of nowehere.

    Unresponsive Desktop/Startup Repair Frozen


    I am having a really weird problem. I attempted to boot my computer up today, and I was greeted with a totally unresponsive desktop. No icons loaded except for the taskbar, and clicking anywhere on the taskbar does nothing. I tried a hard shutdown and I restarted to the same problem. I then tried Crtl+Alt+Del which did bring me to the usual menu, but selecting "Task Manager" would simply return me to the unresponsive desktop. I then selected "Log Out", and I was able to use the login screen to hold Shift while clicking "Restart" to get into the startup options. From here, I tried to boot in Safe Mode, and then with driver signatures disabled. Neither did anything.


    So I went back to the startup options via Shift+Restart and tried to select "Startup Repair". It took me to the startup repair screen, where it prompts me to "choose an account to continue". I only have one account on the computer, and it is the only one listed. I pressed "Enter", and nothing happened. I tried to use the mouse, and nothing happened, I pressed "Esc", and nothing happened. I'm pretty sure it freezes here, because the Caps Lock light doesn't even come on or off if I press the key.


    If anyone has any ideas, I would greatly appreciate it.


    Here are my specs:
    Dell XPS 8300 (0Y2MRG motherboard)
    Intel i5-2400 3.1GHz
    Samsung 850 EVO SSD 500GB (boot drive)
    WD Blue 7200rpm 1TB
    EVGA GTX 1070 FTW 8GB
    12GB Samsung/Micron DDR3 RAM


    Thanks,
    Ben

    Windows 10 Unresponsive After Being Idle - Cannot See Desktop Icons


    Windows 10 Unresponsive After Being Idle Cannot See Desktop Icons. Mouse not working. I have tried Startup Repair, usually by using the "Boot to Advanced Startup Options from a Hard Reboot," since it is the only way I can get my PC to respond.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thank you.
