Last night when I turned on my desktop PC, the windows taskbar and file explorer no longer loaded. I thought, oh cool, figured there would be some bugs, no problem. I had a system restore point from 2 days ago, so I tried restoring that, but no luck. I decided I'll boot to ubuntu, backup my data and reimage my machine back to 10. Well, today I went onto my laptop (also windows 11) and I'm getting the same thing. One interesting thing is I can open apps from the desktop. I opened DaVinci Resolve from its shortcut without issue, but if I try to bring up windows search, open file explorer, etc. the screen flashes with the color of my taskbar and windows tries to reload Windows Explorer. See video for details: https://youtu.be/NPkI1_pqO7g

 

Any direction would be great. I'm assuming at this point I'll have to reimage both machines, but if this becomes a widespread issue it could be very problematic for a lot of beta users.
