  1. Programs are going to "suspended" in Task Manager. Eventually run


    Did a search but did not find anything recent.
    Since the last update or two, random programs (usually older ones) will not immediately run but will come up in task manager first in suspended mode. They will eventually run after a minute, usually in a rush with all instances popping up at once. More clicks on the same shortcut just adds to the list. It makes the taskbar hang with the ring. I have tried right clicking and run as administrator and just open with same results.
    There are multiple hits on MS websites with no solution.
    UAC is disabled.
    Anyone else? Is there already a thread for this?

    EDIT Thought it was Hyper-V but nope.

    Apps. Suspended in Task Manager

    I have tried the Explorer thing and tried to turn Cortana back on but I still hve things suspended in Task Manager.

    Calculator is now suspended.

    Cortana is now suspended

    Photos is now suspended

    Reminders WinRT OOP Server is now suspended

    Windows Shell Experience is now suspended

    I'm not having problems but I just can't figure out why they're suspended and how to remove the suspension.

    I'm lost and may I say I'm just a novice/user. I've never been "too deep" into troubleshooting problems.

    It's an HP Phoenix Desktop, one of the top of the line HP PC's.

    Maybe I should go to the HP chat for help.

    The only thing with that is a lot of times they want to do a system restore and I have way too many programs installed to do that.

    Thanks

  3. running programs in task manager

    We've had lots of problems since the Windows 10 upgrade. Reinstalled W10 and still the start menu disappeared after 2 weeks. Then upgrading to the anniversary version restored missing start menu, but I'm not holding breath on that one. I've now arranged
    shortcuts to make my own start menu right on the desktop just in case. However, these are the current problems:

    • Task manager won't run programs. If I type in a program to run, all I get is a message saying "Windows does not recognize (name of program)" It does this for everything.
    • Photoshop Version 7 will not open since anniversary upgrade. (Click on icon -in start menu, on shortcut, on task bar, in task manager...anywhere-and zero happens) & folders looks empty if viewed in task manager. It worked fine before the latest upgrade.
      However, if I go into the OS programs, the files are all still there. It's still in the start menu. I have tried everything including right clicking and running as administrator. Photoshop works fine on another old laptop with previous Windows 10 version installed
      from online upgrade.
    • Photoshop won't even load onto son's brand new laptop which has the same Windows 10 version as old laptop.
    • Ditto Photoshop Premier Elements 7.0
    • Contact support app does not open-it just pops up and then disappears. I'd like to get rid of it but there is no uninstall.
    • Cortana... oh, what can I say? Big waste of time and space? It does not work and I would like to get rid of it.
