Looking around the interwebz, seems others are having issues with monitoring software, e.g.CPU-Z, HWiNFO, using W11.

You know Microsoft's motto is; 'If it ain't broke, fix it 'til is.'

It's indeed because of Windows 11.  It uses sandboxing which prevents several low-level calls that would be required to measure BCLK properly on certain Intel processors like Skylake, Kaby Lake, Coffee Lake, and Comet Lake.  We haven't found a proper workaround or fix yet.  What works is to disable Memory Integrity in Windows Settings / Security.

The problem is with VBS (virtualization based security). You can verify that by using "msinfo" utility (just search "msinfo" in start menu).

Long story short, if you have enabled "Virtual machine platform" (which is an additional windows feature needed for WSL2 for example), most probably this feature (VBS) is also running. Once turned off, AIDA benchmark works fine.
