Desktop Right Click Personalize and Display Settings don't work in Windows 11
Steps taken, but have been unsuccessful?
Taken below steps
Ok, last night I farked myself up. I disabled KIS and WiseVector and downloaded a cracked software.

During the download process WiseVector prompted with warning messages that malware were detected and actions taken to quarantine them. I then re-enabled KIS and did a scan and true enough KIS picked them up, and I resolved them.

After that, on the desktop, I right click Personalize and Display Settings and they don't work. A blue screen 'PowerShell' appears very quickly for a split second and then it's off. The other items on the context menu work as usual.

I followed the instructions below for Win 10 but it doesn't work



I also ran sfc /scannow and DISM. They reported problems as fixed.

Any help short of reinstalling Winodws 11? Thanks

Oh... that's a huge mistake I would say. Never compromise your system with hacked/ cracked software. If I were you i wouldn't trust the system now, once compromised is compromised forever. Reinstating a good system image would be a wise idea.
