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.

Fix 2. Run the SFC and DISM Scan

Since Windows system files corruption can be a potential cause of the 0x0 0x0 error in Windows, the second step should be running the SFC and DISM scan through Command Prompt, which is likely to repair the missing or corrupted system files, and will you get out of the difficult situation.

Step 1. Type cmd in Search and open the Command Prompt as administrator.

Step 2. Now enter the below command each by each:

DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth
sfc /scannow

Step 3. Restart your PC and the operating system will start an automatic scan and check for the integrity of the system files.

Fix 3. Download Windows 11 Insider Preview ISO for Clean Install
