XBox will not open up my Dashboard after latest forced update

I updated my XBox360 last week and after the forced reboot my dashboard will not open.  I get the "connecting" swirl and end up looking at it for like 10 minutes.  If I open the disk tray and close it I can get to my game to run and play online with my XBox live account.  Has anyone else seen this issue and how do you fix it?  I'm hoping it's something easy to fix and I don't have to spend 45 min on the phone with someone at the help desk telling me to make sure all my cables are connected, turn off my router, reboot, etc.....

BTW, the last large update I was downloaded last year I think (not the many small ones usually associated with a particular game) I ended up having all sorts of problems with my NAT type set to strict.....Took forever to fix........

Does your console have an internal hard drive? What happens when you remove that?

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
