Hi Andrew

There does seem to be a conflict between the recent update and Intel Optane

Open the old Control Panel, go to Programs and Features

You should see a specific Intel Optane Software Component. Uninstall the Optane software

Restart your PC

In maybe a months time, go to the support page for your system on the Dell website, then download and install Intel Optane, they should have resolved this bug at that time . . .
