startallback not working

In the past few months, StartAllBack has started triggering errors on Windows 11 and is often found not working. Mostly, this is due to changes in recent Windows updates, but we can’t rule out the possibility of corrupt system files and an improper installation.

Before we begin troubleshooting, update the PC and make sure you don’t have a conflicting tool installed on the PC. If there’s another Windows customization app, remove it using an effective software installer and check for improvements.

What can I do if StartAllBack is not working?

1. Update StartAllBack

  1. Launch StartAllBack and go to the About tab.
  2. Click on Check for updates, and if a newer version is available, install it.update to fix startallback not working

2. Repair the corrupt system files

  1. Press Windows + S to open Search, type Command Prompt in the text field, and click on Run as administrator.command prompt
  2. Click Yes in the UAC prompt.

  4. Next, run the SFC scan using this command: sfc /scannowsfc scan to fix startallback not working

When the system files are corrupt, changes made via StartAllBack won’t reflect, giving the impression that it’s not working. In this case, run the DISM commands and SFC scan to fix things!

Last year, we saw how KB5028182 conflicted with StartAllBack, triggering a wide array of errors. Similar issues may arise in the future, and uninstalling Windows updates should do the trick!

5. Perform a system restore

  1. Press Windows + S to open Search, type Create a restore point in the text field, and click on the relevant result.
  2. Click on System Restore.restore

If nothing else worked, the last option is to perform a system restore. This way, you can revert the system to a previously stable configuration when StartAllBack was working. Remember, a restore also helps when StartAllBack triggers a black screen.

Also, did you know that it’s possible to reset StartAllBack’s free trial, and the entire process takes less than a minute!
