Microsoft recommends editing the registry to get things back to normal.
Microsoft ported a new version of Windows 11 to Windows Insiders late last week as it prepares to release the operating system on October 5, but early testers to install the new chassis soon encountered a problem. Encountered - Taskbar, desktop and configuration program and other major OS components that refuse to load. Microsoft quickly released a registry fix that resolved the issue, but the company didn't provide further details about the errors.
The most complete investigation of this issue is done by the Ctrl blog of developer Daniel Aleksandersen - as he points out, the "IrisService" mentioned in the Microsoft registry edit is part of the Windows Spotlight service, which is responsible for fetching new lock wallpapers and other instances. Suggestions and announcements in the words of Alexanderson himself:
Based on the solution provided by Microsoft, I've limited the problem to a registry key containing a JSON serial bubble. The news contained advertisements for Microsoft Teams. The messages and images in the ads are similar to the panel that you press Windows key + C on a Windows account that is not preset with Teams.
In other words, it appears that an advertisement for one of the built-in Windows 11 apps has crashed, causing most of the operating system's interface to crash.Read more Switching ads from Microsoft Edge to Windows 11 gets more annoying
This issue combines the latter two with today's most annoying Windows tendencies. First, it is constantly promoting and prioritizing Microsoft apps and services from a first-person perspective. Second, the operating system talks to Microsoft servers in the background to receive diagnostic information, receive ads, and even download Windows Store apps without a request. As Alexanderson rightly points out, these unnecessary background processes shouldn't be able to disrupt basic performance. And while this issue has occurred with beta versions of Windows 11 rather than what actually runs on most PCs, we still have less than a month until it officially launches, and recent versions of Windows 11 have mostly changed to debug mode to add big releases of new features. This detailed OS architecture is provided to IT organizations in the Inside Release Preview channel, which is usually stored for the final or semi-final release.
We asked Microsoft if it plans to prevent this from happening when the public version of Windows 11 is released next month, and we'll update if we get a response. This issue should not affect people who install the latest Insider build, but if your PC is damaged, try editing Microsoft's recommended restart registry.
