ERROR: NotFound: The system cannot find the file specified. (os error 2), remove . . .

I'm using RStudio 2022.12.0+353 "Elsbeth Geranium" Release (7d165dcfc1b6d300eb247738db2c7076234f6ef0, 2022-12-03) for Windows Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) RStudio/2022.12.0+353 Chrome/102.0.5005.167 Electron/19.1.3 Safari/537.36.

My output format is:
embed-resources: true
toc: true
code-tools: true

When I render, the html is produced, but the _files folder isn't removed and causes the Render process to hang. This same code runs fine on my MacBook Pro -- this started happening after a recent "security" update for Windows 10. Any ideas on a fix?
