For this, there are two solutions: in the first, you can try to create a new local user account to force the new taskbar to appear; The second is to reinstall the new operating system from scratch.

bug in internet bar

After the update, some users encountered a connection from The internet is much slower than usual This is another example of a mistake. In this case, hardware with network software Intel Corporation Killer simply “drops” UDP (User Datagram Protocol) packets under certain conditions, and as a result, sites can take longer to load and streams can be poorer – not even using VPN Solve the problem.

Low performance in games

Microsoft prides itself on having created the most secure Windows in the operating system registry, but doesn’t comment that the features it enables can come at a performance cost — as with VBS, virtualization-based security. It is a security mechanism that uses the capabilities of virtual machines to create and isolate a secure area of ​​the operating system’s memory.

On new computers shipped with Win 11, the feature is enabled by default. However, enabling the tool can affect gaming performance. Damage varies depending on the tested title, as shown by the PC Gamer website – in Horizon Zero Dawn, the effect was 25%, while in subway displacement, 24%, but Far Cry New Dawn Only 5% suffered.

Problems with AMD CPUs

This problem is intriguing, mainly due to the fact that it has been recognized before AMD: Windows 11 doesn’t seem to handle some of the features of the Ryzen family CPUs very well — of all generations, sure. The hurdle is divided into two parts, L3 memory latency (up to 3 times in the new OS) and incompatibility with the Preferred Cores feature to optimize the load per core.

It’s not known exactly what kind of software the performance impact is in, but AMD claims it will be mostly in apps and games that are sensitive to memory latency. cache And in applications that take advantage of more powerful cores for front-end tasks. Damage may be up to 15% in more severe cases.

Unfortunately, there’s no fix for the flaw at the moment, but the chip maker says it’s working in partnership with Microsoft to release a fix in the form of an update later in October.

Over time, these issues will likely be resolved properly via a software update; Until then, however, users should consider whether they want to switch operating systems just to quench their curiosity. All in all, Windows 11 add-ons are pretty cool, but is it worth the stress of finding some misplaced things?
