Windows 11 Bug Report - Explorer.exe Crash

Copper Contributor

 I discovered a bug that allows explorer.exe to crash. While pressing my "Left Mouse Button" and my "Page Back Button" it results in an error saying "The system detected an overrun of a stack-based buffer in this application. This overrun could potentially allow a malicious user to gain control of this application". This error applies to any executable on my taskbar. Below is my computer Specs and the issue screen. Specs.jpgIssue ScreenIssue Screen
