If you are having problems with Windows 11 for two weeks you are not alone… Many users are complaining about a recent patch. Published on April 25 under the reference KB5012643, it is a update cumulative supposed to rectify many bugs of the system. However, it brings its share of new problems.

Following the installation of the patch, some apps no longer open or crash. The problem would be related to specific components of .NET Framework 3.5. The update also affects system backup using the function Backup and Restore. Safe mode is also having issues, but Microsoft was able to use the feature Known Issue Rollback (KIR) to undo that part of the fix and the problem should fix itself automatically if it hasn’t already.

Microsoft is working on a patch for its hotfix…
