Hi @copin clair ,
Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!
Please update your VS2022 Professional via Visual Studio Installer.
Then, launch it in Safe Mode (run devenv /SafeMode in Developer Command Prompt for VS 2022).
If the VS works fine in safe mode, it means that the error is caused by the installed extensions. You can temporarily disable or uninstall the installed extensions (especially WDK extension) under Extensions > Manage Extensions > Installed.
Besides, you can also try to uninstall and reinstall the VS.
