When I enter the windows setup and select advanced options then Optional Updates the window goes Blue then crashes also occurs when configure Update policies is selected.

After the challenges of my update to Windows 11 (nobody said anything about ZoneAlarm being incompatible!) I am facing the same problem, although I don't get the BSOD but Settings simply crashes out. I have checked the integrity of the image (DISM - SFC) and all is well, but Settings simply crashes when I click on "Optional Updates" which tells me that there are 4 available.

Help, please!
