Docker failed to initialize on Windows

Today i had some issues with Docker and i just got the message "Docker failed to initialize" when i was trying to start it on my Windows 10 machine. I'm not sure why this happened all of a sudden but it either had to do with an update to Docker Desktop or that i activated TPM in my BIOS (i did not install Windows 11).

Anyway, this was fixed bu just deleting the file %APPDATA%\Docker\settings.json.

Found the answer in this Stack Overflow question.
