We talked about an update bug with Windows 11 recently. Now, there is an issue affecting popular browsers in both Windows 10 and Windows 11. A potential compatibility issue between Windows updates and antivirus solutions causes browsers such as Chrome, Edge, and Firefox to lock up with an error message such as “The application failed to start correctly (0xc0000022)”.

Microsoft recently rolled out April 2022 updates for Windows 10 and Windows 11. The software giant is apparently unaware of these issues. Reports on the web indicate that the patch may break some browsers.

Some Windows users who have installed recent updates are unable to start Chrome, Edge or Firefox due to an obscure error with code 0xc000022. When users try to start Chrome.exe, msedge.exe, and Firefox.exe, they face error 0xc0000022.

Some of the users have stated in their messages that the problem was fixed when they uninstalled the KB5012599 update:

After installing KB5012599, I get error 0xc0000022 when starting Edge, Firefox and Chrome, so they no longer work. Fortunately Vivaldi and Brave work perfectly.

Another is:

After installing the latest KB5012592 cumulative update, all search engines (Edge, Firefox, etc.) respond with error code 0xc000022.

Reports indicate that the issue is caused by the latest Windows 10 and Windows 11 cumulative updates. However, according to some sources, there is a compatibility issue between Windows 10/11 updates and antivirus applications like ESET. Crashes can also be caused by this.

It remains unclear whether the bug affects other antivirus solutions. If you are getting the error message mentioned above, you can uninstall the bulk update or disable the security extensions in the browser.
