Recently Microsoft has published details regarding a new bug found in Windows 11, where this bug affects the file explorer and causes CPU usage to be higher than normal.

This bug itself affects users who have installed the update KB5026372 which is tuesday patch last May 2023. According to Microsoft, the problem occurs when users try to check effective access permissions in the “Advanced Security Settings” dialog for sharing files and folders. After the user clicks “View effective access”, Windows will display a “Computing effective access…” message without any results, but File Explorer will still be fetching CPU Resources even if the user has closed the Advanced Security Settings dialog. Here’s Microsoft’s explanation.

“After installing updates released on May 9, 2023 or later updates, you might be unable to view Effective Access in the “Advanced Security Settings” dialog for shared files or folders. On affected devices, when the “View effective access” button is selected, you will receive the message “Computing effective access….” but the results of the query might not be displayed and explorer.exe might continue to use CPU after the Advanced Security settings dialog is closed. This issue is unlikely to be experienced by consumers using Windows devices in their homes.”

How to overcome

If by chance you encounter the same problem when accessing Advanced Security Settings in FIle Explorer, you can solve this problem by doing reboot system Windows 11, or users can do sign out and then sign in return to the user account that the user uses in Windows 11.

This bug affects Windows 11 22H2 and 22H2, but it could also occur in Windows Server 2022. Meanwhile, Microsoft is currently working on a fix for this issue and promised that they will release a permanent fix by the end of this month.
