Hello everyone!
I upgraded Windows 10 to Windows 11 today and got these problems:
1) Explorer has an old design from Windows 10.
2) The taskbar has the old design from Windows 10 and the Start and Search buttons don't work.
Some time ago I installed an insider build and everything worked fine, however I went back to Windows 10 then to wait for the release version of Windows 11. Now I got these problems.
Does anyone know how I can fix this?

Same Issue. I solved it by opening "Control" and change the date to a future day and restart.

@thinh191Same issue. But not solved by change date and restart.

I am also having this problem having previously rolled back to Windows 10 from preview release.

Everyone I know with this problem did the same, rolled back from the release preview on Windows 10 and got this bug when upgrading from Windows 10 to the final Windows 11. Is there really no solution for this, except for a clean install of Windows 11?
