Fedora 37 Freezes when opening apps

Hello, Since today (I did an update but don’t know if I did it before or after it started) every time I try to open nearly every app (e.g. Nautilus, Tweaks,…) my PC freezes up and I need to shut it down via power Button. Strangely Firefox, vs code and other third party apps are still working. Terminal works as well. I disabled all my gnome extensions via terminal and the problem is still happening. I’m on wayland but I tested xorg and I have the same problem.
Has some similar problems and can help?
No idea where I start searching for the problem. Never had something like this before with Fedora.

Help would be appreciated.

Here my journalctl -b -1 --priority=3

I would check the health of the hard drive.

It works flawlessly unless I open the mentioned apps
so I think it’s not the hardware

On reddit mentioned someone had the same problem after the update today

Ok I found the problem
It’s the new Kernel release 6.0.16
If I switch back to .15 all works as intended

If you have sabma shares mounted it could be that a bug in 6.0.16 could caused the freez.
This problem should be solved in 6.0.18.

I just mention this because you said nautilus also freezes the system.

You might give a try with the newest kernel.
