    So I installed the latest Redstone 4 Public Preview.

    Here are some changes to the PC Settings:

    Initial Impressions:

    1) Restart shutdown is much faster

    2) The OS feels much snappier

    3) Still buggy, in Redstone 3, right after a format, when you go to PC Settings Privacy > Background Apps, the whole PC Settings crash, that only happens once.

    In Redstone 4, go to PC Settings, Personalization > Themes, and it crashes the PC Settings, not once, but every single time.

    It baffles me how Microsoft even after many preview builds, can't get the most basic of things to work :rolleyes:

    Cinebench on Redstone 3:

    Ok my VPN stopped working, it just won't connect to any location. I use hide.me :rolleyes:

    Ok I managed to connect the VPN but using OpenVPN not IKEv2

    Insider preview always was snappy and faster than public releases.
    As for #3, did you disable Settings from being in background? That bug is present on my phone since ages (2 y.o)
    For now allow all apps/UWP apps like Files,Settings to be in Background. You see, in MS's terms background apps means whether the app will quit working when you hit back button or use Win Key+D or use your mouse/KB to switch to another Application/task.

    Try using Dism++ to cleanup WinSxS, .NET assembly cache, WinSxS temps and Log files. After that, compile netfx assemblies using ngen update or ngen eqi /silent
    Path is here for x64: C:/Windows/Microsoft.NET/Framework64/v4.0.30319/
    For x86: C:/Windows/Microsoft.NET/Framework/v4.0.30319/
    See if it works for you.

    I am restoring the health of my taptop using the DISM command now:

    Code:
    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    EDIT: That didn't work

    Run it after Cleaning up to avoid Windows Update clogging WinSxS.

    I never used it and never worked for me. I used the ISO from MSFT's Insider page and verified it against Insider Preview ISO for near precise repair.

    scrap all that, when I posted this issue on the MDL forums, here's the reply:

    Microsoft cannot even getting something as simple as PC Settings to work even after 100s of builds / betas. :rolleyes:

    Here is how I feel right now after nuking my stable Windows install and trying this build:

    Well there is no RTM yet.

    I hope Poopoosan can join me in the Windows Guinea pig campaign to test the next build for all other users
