Yes shadow97 and humbert sometimes those .cpl shortcuts cause issues.
Check SSD health or run chkdsk /f /x c: Files missing isn't a good sign.

I had to reinstall. Not a clean install, I set it to keep my files. It solved the problem. The strange thing was that since I had Windows Defender disabled, this thing took Emsisoft EEK and actually turned it into another Windows Defender. I had to uninstall and put back the portable one that has to be run on demand. The reason was it was constantly giving me false positives and interfering with any attempt to stop telemetry. That why I hate Windows Defender.

BTW, to uninstall I found a little goodie called HiBit Uninstaller. It's the best uninstaller I've ever seen and, best of all, it's total freeware. Check it out.

EDIT: Looks like Win 11 will not run on skylake/kabylake and also first gen Ryzen CPUs. So I don't think I will be able to release custom Win 11 ISOs but will continue with Win 10 ISO.

I bet sooner or later all these bugs will be squashed. One thing I do like: there will be NO 32-bit release of Windows 11. It is all 64. Finally! This change is long overdue. Somewhere I heard that there are some distros of Linux who are doing the very same thing. How long has it been since anyone made a 32 bit CPU?

You can also find links to specific items in the control panel thru some googling. The links to them are created the same way as in this tutorial

Yes, of course. The Godmode shortcut. I forgot all about it. It's OK. I noticed that there somehow there were quite a few .cpl files missing in the Windows/System32 folder. I decided to reinstall 21H2 keeping my files and that appeared to fix the problem. Somehow some important files and setting got deleted. The reinstall brought them all back.

It's a good idea to run sfc /scannow every few days. It always seems to find some corrupt files.

I wouldn't worry :) If it runs on 2000 ryzen someone will surely find a way to make it run on 1000 ryzen

I do use hibit nowadays. Except their reg cleaner all features are great! For registry I prefer Wise products.

Another problem with Windows 11 is Micro$haft's insistence of TPM 2.0 and (I believe) secure boot. Maybe I can live with TPM 2.0 assuming my board supports it. What I don't like is secure boot. I frequently boot from flashdrives to load Sergei Strelec's ISO plus a bunch of others according to need. As far as I know secure boot makes this impossible. I'd like to ask Micro$shaft what do I do if Windows won't boot and the only way to fix it is to boot Strelec to either attempt to fix it or do a full restore from backup.

BTW I'm thinking I might have to upgrade my laptop when Windows 11 goes full tilt. Hopefully it will not have Windows Home on it. You're forced to use a Microsoft account, which I hate to do.

On my computer this secure boot is disabled since it won't let you install a modified version of windows 10 (which is the case for the version here: https://www.nomaher.com/forum/index.php?topic=3350.msg36418#msg36418). For the moment, I don't see windows 11 as a necessary update anyway.

Note that I'm preparing a surprise for humbert, Vasudev and the users of the forum. A lite windows 11 with many tweaks, will be available for download soon. It is being prepared.

Awesome! I'll check it out on Virtualbox. Were you able to remove TPM and/or secure boot?

No.
Note that it was only tested under Vmware workstation v12.
