    Hello All,

    I'm working on Turkey office of a multinational company and we also affected with this issue in many countries especially Europe region.

    We have contacted with MS and create and Incident and discussed with MS engineers start of this week and they accepted the issue and said relaited with April or May updates so they're working to fix and will publish an update or hotfix for this problem.

    We 're waiting them , in paralel we have stopped the deploying updates and IT team reimaging laptops which affected, clean installation fixes issue if you do not get April and May updates.

    This is an internal issue due to a 3rd Party client installation that corrupts the registry key.

    The issue is related to invalid values in the HKEY_USERS.DEFAULT\Control Panel\International\Locale registry

    The workaround steps are:

    1. start checking the current registry value for the locale registry setting
    2. change the value to a supported value like 00000409
    3. Reboot
    4. Check if authentication works now
    5. Note whether reboots or other activities besides the installation of the May 9, 2024 Windows Update are reverting the locale registry value

    We had the same issue where also windows kb5037771 keeps looping.

    As a solution Microsoft advised to remove the kb, we had several complications where users weren't local admin, We could not make use of local administrator accounts configured in azure. The problem also gave us issues with tanium agent.

    To solve the issue we had to modify the corrupted registry value Locale under HKEY_USERS.DEFAULT\Control Panel\International , the value had corrupted data we needed to change it to 00000413 for dutch for other os languages it will be a different value i suppose. After modifying the REG_SZ value you have to reboot.

    We just applied the fix not sure if it will be stable.

    We are seeing this issue as well. We use Azure SSO with our DUO MFA for Cisco AnyConnect and have users seeing that error along with the VPN service not starting.

    We have users getting that error when accessing in a regular browser window, but in private mode or Chrome it works without issue. This seems to be something in Edge possibly that could have been pushed in a new update.

    We have Microsoft tickets opened as well as a ticket with DUO

    We have 8 people affected so far all Windows 11 users. Our thoughts is that Windows Update tried to install updates to the OS and possibly Edge and they failed to install and then it corrupted something.

    Everything works fine in Chrome or a Private window. But our VPn launches Edge to authenticate so these people can't work remote.
