Thanks for the reply and input... The "WIP official announcement" is dated 06 April 2022 after this thread about the 'evaluation copy' screen bug and memory integrity issue... Is there a link to this announcement prior to the last two insider updates...? Before the first of the last two updates, NO 'evaluation copy' screen bug showed up and the memory integrity switch was not affected UNTIL the last two updates...

 

If this is the sort of thing that happens when combining 'DEV' and 'BETA' channels when it comes to these insider updates, maybe it behooves Microsoft to be more upfront in announcing about possible issues that may happen when combining said channels...?  Maybe they did, but who wants to plow through thousands or more postings to find out...?

 

For myself, if these issues keep ping-ponging around in this discussion with no real solution other than installing a clean install of Windows 11, then I am just going to leave the insider program because bringing up this issue is like shouting into the winds of an oncoming hurricane... :facepalm: (Yeah, I know, who cares if I bow out...)

 

ADDENDUM: Just found this in one of the announcements about 'memory integrity' in the 'DEV' & 'BETA' channel insider preview  build releases:

"In the most recent Insider Preview builds, we will notify the user that this feature is currently turned off so that action can be taken for the user to turn it back on so that their device is as secure as possible against malicious attacks."

 

As was noted in previous feedback and posts in this thread: MEMORY INTEGRITY CANNOT BE SWITCHED BACK ON...!

 

I just hope my system will not be maliciously attacked in the interim before the parallel universe of the 'DEV' & 'BETA' channels decide to default the memory integrity of insider's computers to be in the ON mode...:sad:
