Windows 11 warning: system restore is breaking some PCs.

Windows 11 users on the latest version 22H2 of the operating system should be wary of a bug that is messing up some important apps after a system restore has been performed.

Bleeping Computer pointed out this development, which is discussed in a Microsoft support post about the problem where affected users encounter a ‘this app can’t open’ error message with some core Windows applications.

The error pops up after reverting your PC to a past system restore point, and it hits some apps that use the MSIX Windows package format.

That includes Notepad, Paint, Microsoft Office, Cortana, Terminal, and possibly other Windows apps, Microsoft observes. But note that some applications which use the MSIX format remain fine.

As well as the aforementioned error message, users may also experience other glitches, including an I/O error followed by the app freezing up and then crashing. Furthermore, an affected program may simply fail to work when you double-click to start it, and it could be the case that an application ends up with multiple entries on the Start menu.

Microsoft gives no indication that it’s preparing a fix or further investigating the problem here. We assume that’s the case, but there’s no mention of this (and typically with bugs like this, there would be). Instead, Microsoft offers up a number of possible workarounds for those experiencing issues.

The first of which is basically that old favorite ‘turn it off, then on again’; simply start the app up again and it might work fine, second time lucky. Alternatively, reinstalling the application could resolve the errors (which is basically an expanded form of ‘turn off, turn on’ of course).

Or the final recourse is to run Windows Update, though we aren’t told why this might help. Presumably, if there’s an update for the app in question or a cumulative update for Windows pending, this might knock something loose in the system that helps (if the wind is blowing in the right direction and so forth).

Hopefully, Microsoft is actively looking into this bug, because it sounds quite annoying for the proportion of users that might be affected. Restoring your system is a rare course of action to be forced to take, but in cases where necessary, it is hardly avoidable – and there’s bound to be quite a bit of restoring going on across a relatively large user base such as that of Windows 11 22H2. And with Office being potentially affected, that could be pretty frustrating for those trying to get work done.

We reached out to Rich and his team at Computer Geek in July 2021. We were in desperate need of help because our former website design agency left us hanging with major website issues that needed immediate attention. Rich and his team were extremely helpful and quick to come to our rescue! They have helped us with numerous projects that have helped our SEO. Our sales have increased 30% since coming to Computer Geek. We've been working with them for about nine months now and are very pleased with their response time and helpful manner. Rich has proven himself to be trustworthy and dependable. We feel valued as a customer and look forward to continuing a relationship with Computer Geek.

I would certainly like to recommend that anyone pursing maintenance for a website to contact The Computer Geek. I have been using another company to do some maintenance on my site with moderate success. There were issues that were evidently beyond what could be handled by them. However, the professionals at The Computer Geek had them addressed and rectified in no time at all. The Computer Geek approached all of my requests focusing on my goals and the needed performance. Then, once versed, presented me with a very reasonable price. Once the projects were in motion, I found that the tasks were achieved before I expected, with professional results. Also, in one instance where The Computer Geeks brought an issue to my attention that I would have likely overlooked. This was accompanied by a recommendation on how to solve the issue. Overall The Computer Geeks exceeded my expectations!

We discovered an issue with our Oscommerce cart processing images. It is about 14 years old and heavily modified. Looking on google for some expert help I found Rich and reached out to him. We received a response the same day. The next day his team was working on our issue and was able to solve it within a few hours. Price was reasonable and we are very appreciative to find a competent and professional oscommerce expert to help successfully troubleshoot our issue.
