And, as a side note (and too late to be directly pertinent here), it's always worth trying uninstalling and reinstalling the current version when things like this occur.
It's not unheard of for corruptions to occur, regardless of the software, during updates. It's not common, but it's not unheard of, either. Doing a quick uninstall and reinstall when others are not reporting the same difficulties you are having is worth a try, and usually takes just a few minutes.
If that doesn't fix the issue(s), then reverting to the last known good version makes sense.
We're still back at the place, though, where if you (the generic you) are having issues not being widely reported it is most likely something idiosyncratic to your specific system that needs to be addressed, even if you do revert and the older version works since you can't remain reverted "forever."
