Windows 11: Update eliminates causes of crashes (Blue Screen of Death)

The KB5011563 patch now released by Microsoft eliminates two reasons that can cause Windows 11 to crash.

With KB5011563, Microsoft has released an optional cumulative update for Windows 11. This is reported by the US IT news site Bleeping Computer. Patch KB5011563 is one of the so-called “monthly C updates” for March 2022, with which interested Windows 11 users can try patches in advance, which will then be available to all Windows 11 users at the next regular Microsoft patch day on April 12, 2022 As part of these optional C updates, Microsoft never closes urgent security gaps, rather these patches eliminate the causes of crashes or performance problems.

Two BSOD reasons should be a thing of the past

So KB5011563 should fix two issues that can cause Windows 11 to get stuck with a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD). One cause of the crash is related to DirectX and the other is related to SMB Server. The update also brings improvements to app notifications. The patch should also solve a small problem in connection with OneDrive. The corresponding Microsoft blog entry, which you can read here, informs you about the improvements mentioned and also about some other improvements.
