Windows 11 is getting some mixed reviews from its userbase right now, and it looks like issues caused by the latest security update aren’t going to sway opinions in a more positive direction.

As reported by Windows Latest (opens in new tab), Windows 11 update KB5015814 has been released onto the public build of the current Microsoft operating system in order to address existing problems and introduce some new features. These include bringing the Windows Search highlights features to the wider public, as well as eradicating a bug that was preventing people from updating from Windows 10 to Windows 11 on compatible devices.

Unfortunately for some users, the update itself is refusing to install correctly, displaying the 0x8000ffff, 0x8007007e, and 0x80073701 error messages and in some cases forcing systems into an endless reboot loop. At least two individuals have also reported an issue where the Start Button became unresponsive after the installation, but we’re unsure of how widespread that concern is by comparison.
