Windows 11 New Issues KB5034765, Taskbar Missing & File Explorer Crash



For those of you Windows 11 users are getting issues from the February 2024 security update. This update causes File Explorer to Crash on System Reboot, some users report that their Taskbar disappears. Not only that, many users are having problems installing the February 2024 update on Windows 11.

Windows updates are designed to automatically install without impacting productivity, but that doesn't seem to be the case with the latest update in February 2024. In the trial we saw that Windows 11 update KB5034765 repeatedly failed to install with error codes 0x800f0922, 0x800f0982, and 0x80070002.

Some users say that when they try to install the Security Patch, it initially runs smoothly and seems fine. The update is downloaded and prompts for a restart. But during installation, Windows Update stops and gives confirmation that there is a problem. After trying a few times and then going back to the desktop without updating, it's certainly confusing.

There are several ways you can follow to fix this problem, some ways to find and delete this folder from the Windows 11 installation for example. Here are the steps:

Run Disk Cleanup as administrator, select the system drive, and check the boxes for "temporary files" and other relevant options. Finally, click "OK" to delete system files, including Windows Update files. This will remove unnecessary files in $WinREAgent.

Open File Explorer and go to the system drive, but make sure you have enabled hidden items from the folder settings. Find $WinREAgent and delete it from the system.

Open Command Prompt as Administrator, and run the following command: rmdir /S /Q C:$WinREAgent Windows Update causes File Explorer to crash on reboot Some PC owners have also experienced other issues that cause File Explorer to crash when rebooting or shutting down the system.

This issue had previously been detected in Windows 11's January 2024 optional update and appears to have made its way into the security patch when it was released by Microsoft in February 2024.  The Error message indicates an application error in the explorer.exe, mentions a specific memory address and states; "The instruction at 0x00007FFB20563ACa referenced memory at 0x0000000000000024. The memory could not be written. Click on OK to terminate the program"

The instructions in the 0x00007FFB20563ACa refer to the memory in the 0x0000000000000024. This problem seems to persist until now, despite various troubleshooting efforts made by Windows 1 users. What do you think? If you find a solution to this problem then you can write it in the comment column.
