New windows update broke computer

  eh806 23:50 21 Sep 2016

After updating my computer last night to a new build of Windows 10, a ton of issues cropped up on reboot.

1) Everything was slower, including startup

2) Trying to open the start menu resulted in a blue wheel of death

3) Ctrl+Alt+Del gives a black screen where only the mouse can be seen

4) Only program I can currently launch is file explorer, can't seem to run any .exe's

After rolling back to the previous build, the sluggish startup and login went away but the other isssues persisted. Searching for a fix convinced me this might be a virus issue, but without being able to run any programs I'm at a loss on how to troubleshoot that.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
