Windows taskbar blank and can not access settings

Copper Contributor

My taskbar is blank and I can not access settings in Windows 11.

I have tried the following fixes

- reinstall from iso

- delete and restart explorer (multiple times)

- changed the time

- this fix

  • Step 5: Paste the following (everything in bold):
    reg delete HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\IrisService /f && shutdown -r -t 0

  • Step 6: Hit enter, and then your PC should reboot. After rebooting, everything should be back to normal.

- the powershell fix (I do not have link)


nothing seems to work.

any suggestions

I  regret windows 11 200%
