  1. Scheduled task crashing system on startup


    I have a device that, once I login, after a ~30 second pause, is bombarded with countless command prompt windows, to the point where it freezes the system entirely. CTRL+ALT+DEL does nothing to stop it; the mouse doesn't even track after the process has been going for a couple of seconds. Once the command prompts start opening, all actions other than a hard reset are impossible.

    -Windows 10 Home, fully updated through April's 1909
    -Nothing of note in the error logs
    -Performed SFC /scannow in safe mode ... errors found and corrected
    -Performed checkdisk ... nothing
    -Performed a full virus scan using Avast (outside of OS) ... nothing identified (was running Avast CloudCare before the event started)
    -Performed a Windows Reset (keeping apps and files) ... no change

    None of these helped. I turned off the Task Scheduler in the registry to perform some of these actions, but it doesn't really define what is causing the command prompts to open. Before I go digging through the tasks registry, does anyone have any ideas?

    Also, yes, I could easily reinstall Windows and transfer the files to a sledded drive and move them back, but it would take a while reinstalling the software I have on there, and it doesn't tell me what actually went wrong.

    :)

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    What error message you're getting while using Task Scheduler?

    Suggest you try the below mentioned steps to fix any issue with corrupted system files:


    • Press CTRL+Shift+ESC to open Task Manager.

    • Click File > Run New Task

    • Make sure you have a check mark beside “Create this task with administrative privileges”

    • Type CMD

    • Type or copy/paste the following commands at the CMD prompt:

      dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

      sfc /scannnow
    Reboot the system and check if the issue still occurs. If the problem still persist, try to check the issue by creating other User Profile to see if problem still arises.

    Hope this will address your query.
