Windows 11 Pro for workstations insider preview
My Windows 11 (build 25252.1000, pro for workstations insider preview) has a critical problem now that explorer.exe repeatedly crashes and restart almost every second. The problem occurs after installing a update stack package.

Event viewer crash log:
Faulting application name: explorer.exe, version: 10.0.25252.1000, time stamp: 0x789ae93c Faulting module name: Taskbar.View.dll, version: 2022.32200.0.0, time stamp: 0x6376d1b5 Exception code: 0xc0000409 Fault offset: 0x0000000000316b93 Faulting process id: 0x0x308 Faulting application start time: 0x0x1D90A9F587B0F24 Faulting application path: C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe Faulting module path: C:\Windows\SystemApps\MicrosoftWindows.Client.40887771_cw5n1h2txyewy\Taskbar.View.dll Report Id: e2b38f2e-c86c-44c4-9f07-f866dc7c2d51 Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID:
Things I've tried:
  • restart in safe mode. problem still.
  • SFC and DISM commands. no help.
  • replace the file with Taskbar.View.dll extracted from windows setup iso. still crashes but now it says the reason is about Windows.UI.Xaml.dll (I changed it back then)
  • create a new user account. still crash. so the problem has nothing to do with my user profile.
I could not do a repair install because I am using the newest insider build so the ISO downloaded from ms site has a lower version than my system.
Any solution or idea? (I don't want to do a clean install. I have so many data and programs.)

1- Can you try to uninstall the stack package update?
2- You do not happen to have explorer patcher running?
3- Did you enable some undocumented features via vivetool?
Note: If you have used vivetool, do this from the command line: vivetool /fullreset

ps: I am running the same build as you.
