Windows 10 Fall Creators Update- Personalised Settings (Not Responding)

I updated to the new version 1703 build but when I login I have a black wallpaper on my monitor. In the top left a "Personalised Settings" window opens up but immediately stops responding. If I close it and attempt to open explorer.exe from the task manager the same box opens up and crashes again immediately. I managed to get an explorer window open via task manager so I was able to open these CMD to do a system file check.

I tried running the /sfc scannow command in CMD and it claims it found corrupted files and replaced them, however I am met with the same issues when attempting to log in.

Here is the fix for the problem:

- Open Task Manager

- File--> Run--> Regedit (Check run as administrator)

- Backup this directory HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components (Just in case something goes wrong)

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{89820200-ECBD-11cf-8B85-00AA005B4340}] @="Windows Desktop Update" "ComponentID"="IE4_SHELLID" "Enabled"=dword:00000001 "IsInstalled"=dword:00000001

- Delete the key that has something along the lines of windows desktop update v4.

- Delete subkey = IE4_SHELLID

- Go to Task Manager and Restart Windows Explorer

- Desktop should come up now like normal!
