Access Performance Now Terrible on my Local Machine

I have a departmental Access Db on a Windows Server on our network and I put DEV copies on my local machine because its faster to navigate. I recently had a Windows update on my local machine to version 2004 that failed and reverted back to version 1809. About the same time, my Access performance on my local machine slowed down remarkably. So for example, I just did a test to open a 1.7mil record table on the Windows Server version and it took 15 sec. On my desktop, to open the same table took 70 sec!
It used to be faster on my local machine than on windows server. Is this performance issue due to the failed windows update?
