on the screen before the login screen, where you hit space to bring up the box, click the power button in bottom right
while holding shift key down, click the restart option
this should load a blue menu

lets see if we can get into safe mode:
choose troubleshoot
choose advanced
choose start up options
hit the restart button
choose a safe mode (it doesn't matter which) by using number associated with it.
Pc will restart and load safe mode

simply getting into safe mode might fix problem, so you could restart and try

If it doesn't, go back into safe mode again and try this:

right click start button
choose powershell (admin)
type SFC /scannow and press enter
once its completed, type this command into same window:
Repair-WindowsImage -Online -RestoreHealth and press enter
SFC fixes system files, DISM cleans image files, re run SFC if it failed to fix all files and restart PC

if that doesn't help, go back into safe mode again and perhaps copy anything off PC you can't afford to lose. we might have to do a reset or something to fix it.

I had the same problem and this did the trick. When booting into safe mode there were some more updates that didn't seem to get installed the first time. Then I restarted the pc and it works fine now. I did not have to do any of the fix commands, I guess it just needed to finish updating and only safe mode would do it.
