After updating my G751JT with the windows anniversary update today it has caused my laptop to freeze after logging in.

I found a post here Https://www.reddit.com/r/Windows10/comments/4vufpo/windows_10_fully_freezes_after_anniversary_update detailing
The problem and some possible solutions. It was pretty much the exact problem I encountered. I have rolled back to the previous windows build
using the steps shown in that thread and everything seems to work again.

Has anyone encountered this using a G751 after updating?

You might want to try running the upgrade using the MCT (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10/) the USB that is created has all but one update included. I'm seeing on the Windows 10 Forum a lot of people are have better success that way.
I would also recommend that you use Macrium Reflect Free (http://www.macrium.com/reflectfree.aspx)or some other imaging software to create a Image of your Disk before starting the upgrade. Restoring an Images is fare faster than rolling back and less chance of errors. At least you would have a back up in case the install doesn't go well or rolling back fails somehow.
