Microsoft first announced in mid-August that they were looking into the freezing reports from a number of users. Now a new post on the company’s support forums (via Neowin) confirmes that Wednesday’s cumulative update includes a fix:
After the launch of the Anniversary Update for Windows 10, Microsoft received a small number of reports of Windows 10 freezing when signing into Windows after installing the Anniversary Update. With the help of users and MVP’s who posted on this thread an investigation determined that a small fraction of users who had moved app information to a second logical drive could encounter this issue. The Windows Update released on August 31st for Windows 10 includes a fix for this issue. This update is automatically applied when installing the Anniversary Update.
