    Hello,

    In this case, it is possible that Windows 11 upgrade had detected an incorrect file association and persistence for exe that could suppose a vulnerability for the system. Please try a system health restore following the next article:

    Additionally, there is a working workaround proposed in Microsoft Answers community, which include a modification of the registry. Please always backup your registry before making any changes. If you don't feel comfortable editing the Registry, contact a professional that can perform the operation.
