How to Fix Error 0x0 0x0 in Windows 11

Make sure that you restarted your PC several times before heading to the three solutions here. What's more, do not skip any of the important notices in the troubleshooting methods.

Fix 1. Repair Windows Registry

To resolve the issue, try deleting the WindowsSelfHost registry key. It should be automatically recreated when you access the Windows Insider Program page in Settings.

This method contains steps on how to modify the registry. Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow the steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if the problem occurs.
