Opened up EN on my Mac this morning to find that tasks won't open, went onto the app store, updated to the latest only to find that they still won't open, just a constant spinning wheel.

No such problem on IOS.

2. Select the "Remove my Evernote data from this device" option, then click Sign out
3. Restart your computer
4. Sign back in to Evernote

Please let me know if you're still having trouble after following the steps above or if you did not create tasks in notes shared to you.

For a real reset it is probably uninstall time:

Make sure EN is fully synced, quit EN.

Get the app AppCleaner, free on the internet. Install it, give it all necessary rights (Mac settings, security, tab privacy). Open AppCleaner.

Draw the Evernote icon from the applications folder on top of the AppCleaner window. A second window opens, listing all program components. Some are checked, some are unchecked. Check them all, scroll way down, check more. 

Now hit uninstall. When done, restart the Mac. 

Download the dmg file from the EN website (don‘t use the AppStore version). Install, log in. Now let the initial sync run its course - with your 18.000 notes this may take a while. Wait this step to finish - you avoid corrupting data while the sync is going on.
