As we already know, Microsoft released the final version of Windows 11 on October 5, 2021, quickly followed by the first Windows 11 critical update. However, both of these updates lacked some critical bugs reported by several Windows Insiders via feedback hub. This includes the everlasting performance issues with the AMD processors. The latest Windows 11 update with build 22000.282, released via Beta and Release Preview Channels, finally addresses the issue of L3 caching for AMD Ryzen processors.
Microsoft just released a huge new update today via Windows 11 Beta Channel and Release Preview Channel with build 22000.282 fixing some critical bugs. This is indeed a major update that will make its way to the final Windows 11 build 21H2 in the upcoming days.
Apart from fixing the L3 caching issue affecting performance in applications on devices running AMD Ryzen processors, the Windows 11 Build 22000.282 also fixed the bug where Start menu not working and preventing users from seeing the updated taskbar design. Fixed early part of startup that might cause a stop error. Windows throwing error 0x38 on some machines has been addressed.
Here is a huge list of bug fixes from the latest Windows 11 build:
This update includes the following improvements:
- We fixed an L3 caching issue that might affect performance in some applications on devices that have AMD Ryzen processors after upgrading to Windows 11 (original release).
- We fixed an issue for a small number of users that prevents the Start menu from working and prevents you from seeing the updated taskbar design after upgrading to Windows 11 (original release).
- We fixed a race condition that occurs during the early part of startup that might cause a stop error.
- We fixed a regression that might cause stop error 0x38 on some machine configurations that use non-ASCII text in the registry.
- We fixed an issue with the interrupt handling of certain processors that might cause devices to stop responding.
- We fixed an issue that causes PowerShell to create an infinite number of child directories. This issue occurs when you use the PowerShell Move-Item command to move a directory to one of its children. As a result, the volume fills up and the system stops responding.
- We fixed an issue that causes the Server Manager application to disappear after you use it to remove Hyper-V features. This issue occurs when you install Server Manager on Windows 11 (original release) clients using Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT).
- We fixed a threading issue that might cause the Windows Remote Management (WinRM) service to stop working when it is under a high load.
- We fixed an issue that causes the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) provider host process to stop working. This occurs because of an unhandled access violation that occurs when using the Desired State Configuration (DSC).
- We fixed an issue that causes a device to stop responding when you forcibly shut down the device while a Group Policy is being updated.
- We fixed an issue that causes file migration between Distributed File System (DFS) paths that are stored on different volumes to fail. This issue occurs when you implement the migration using PowerShell scripts that use the Move-Item command.
- We fixed an issue that prevents you from writing to a WMI repository after a low memory condition occurs.
- We fixed an issue with a hardcoded font in the PowerShell shortcut file that distorts Japanese, Chinese, and Korean language fonts. This update fixed this issue for all newly created users on the machine. Existing users can use the C:\Users\Default\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Windows PowerShell\Windows PowerShell.lnk file to open PowerShell to address the issue. Alternatively, existing users can create a shortcut to this file on the desktop and use the shortcut to open PowerShell.
- We fixed an issue with parsing time formats in events when milliseconds are excluded.
- We fixed an issue that incorrectly renders some Enhanced Metafile Format (EMF) files. This issue occurs if you build the EMF files using third-party applications with ExtCreatePen() and ExtCreateFontIndirect().

- We fixed an issue with PropertyGet in JScript9.dll.
- We fixed a memory leak that occurs when you use nested classes within VBScript.
- We fixed an issue that fails to keep the NumLock state after a Fast Startup restart.

Value name: RestrictDriverInstallationToAdministrators
Value data: 1

- We fixed an issue with a non-paged pool (NPP) leak from the UxSF pool tag. This leak occurs when lsass.exe stops processing asynchronous Security Support Provider Interface (SSPI) calls.
