30/09/2021 Windows 11 Update.

 

After install and reboot I no longer have access to the taskbar and windows explorer is not responding. Seems I'm not the only one having this issue.

 

Anyone have a solution or workaround yet? PC is useless in this state.

 

Thanks

Currently just did an update today on windows 11 preview and I'm having the same issue. Somebody help us.
I was able to roll it back by opening Control Panel via the Task Manager (File > Open new task and type in “control”) and going to Review your computer’s status (under System and Security) > Recovery > Open System Restore and undoing the latest system update.

Alternatively, pressing ctrl+alt+del and shift+clicking on Restart will give you the option to run the system restore before restarting.

This doesn’t work for everyone it seems, but I hope it helps someone.
