But beats up your PC

Windows 11’s major new update (Moment 2) has been released as a preview and brings the AI driven Bing to the taskbar. However, the update appears to get drunk and get into a fight with the rest of the software and shuts everything down.

To be fair, Vole knows what is going on and flagged it as a known issue in the support document for the cumulative preview update (KB5022913). Microsoft said that some third-party UI customization apps can cause errors with Explorer.exe that could repeat in a loop. Unfortunately, that is File Explorer for the uninitiated and it’s the central pillar of the Windows 11 interface.

The company names ExplorerPatcher and StartAllBack, which help Windows customisation are affected. Although it does note that StartAllBack users running version 3.5.6 (or newer) may avoid the bug.

Microsoft warns: “These types of apps use unsupported methods to achieve their customisation and as a result can have unintended results on your Windows device.”
