Microsoft admits that Windows 11 has a bug that users can't log in, and it has been fixed

IT House reported on September 9 that Microsoft confirmed a Windows 11 vulnerability that may cause users to be unable to log in after the first restart or logout after updating the system and adding a new Microsoft account user. According to Microsoft, this is a bug caused by the KB5016691 update. IT Home understands that the update was initially rolled out on August 25, 2022. At present, Microsoft has quickly resolved this problem and updated the problem report. After installing this update in Windows and adding a new Microsoft account user, you may not be able to log in briefly after the first restart or logout. This issue only affects newly added Microsoft account users, and only first-time sign-in. This issue only affects devices with a Microsoft account added. It does not affect Active Directory domain user accounts or Azure Active Directory accounts. If you encounter this issue, it will be resolved automatically after a short period of time. Need to wait for the lock screen to reappear and should be able to log in as expected. This issue was resolved using Known Issue Rollback (KIR). Note that resolutions can take up to 24 hours to propagate automatically to consumer devices and unmanaged business devices. Restarting the Windows device may help to apply the resolution to the device faster. For enterprise-managed devices that have the affected update installed and are experiencing this issue, the issue can be resolved by installing and configuring a special group policy. Special Group Policy can be found in Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> KB5016691 220722_051525 Known Issues Rollback -> Windows 11 (original version).

Group Policy Download using Group Policy Name:

  • Download Windows 11 Version 21H2 - KB5016691 220722_051525 Known Issue Rollback
Important Install and configure the Windows version of Group Policy to resolve this issue. To address this, Microsoft has announced a "Known Issue Rollback" that will revert to previously-released Windows patch versions. Microsoft also recommends restarting your machine to correct the current version resolution. For enterprise-managed devices, you'll need to address this through KIR Group Policy. Download it from the link provided by Microsoft above, and then follow the Group Policy.
