  2. Task Bar, Task manager and apps, all not responding, Windows 10

    step 1 worked a dream. Had earlier tried everything suggested in these forums. nothing had worked to solve the problem. The media creation tool as suggested in step 1 did the trick. - it took several hours, but worth it.

    ps. original complaint - non responding - and task manager - blank or useless.

    Windows 10 Task Manager (not responding)?

    This is most likely a Firefox v57.x issue and/or a close version to v57.x. Just remove Firefox via the Windows Control Panel!

    That is, I found no way to solve the issue until I did these things:

    A) I changed Firefox Accessibility as Mozilla desired (just do a search but it's a waste of time IMHO). I don't believe this helped at all.

    I rebooted (Restart)

    Still had Task Manager not responding!

    B) I ran the Microsoft scans and checks. This validated my system from Microsoft's perspective was fine. This did not solve the issue but it validated that I was "clean". I would highly recommend you do this to put your mind at ease on your system's "cleanliness".
    It takes about 5-10 minutes to do these commands and their respective processes.

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

    sfc /scannow

    I rebooted (Restart)

    No issues changed. Still had Task Manager not responding.

    C) I removed Firefox via the Windows Control Panel. There are two (2) entries. Removing the first (primary Firefox browser removes the second one listed. Can't remember their names but they are listed under "Mozilla".)

    I rebooted (Restart)

    Task Manager worked fine.

    D) I reinstalled Firefox from the www.mozilla.org website (v57.x)

    I rebooted (Restart)

    Task Manager (not responding) issue again

    I terminated the Task Manager

    I removed Firefox

    I rebooted (Restart)

    E) I notified Firefox. Firefox is NOT a browser I am currently using. I am exclusively using Google Chrome on my 64bit OS Win10 Pro. Intermittently I'll use Edge....

    I hope this helps!!!!

    task manager not responding

    Windows 10 - cannot add exec to Startup in Task Manager

    I purchased a new computer with Windows 10 already installed. I am trying to add an exec to the startup list but Win10 will not accept it. The exec runs successfully on my Windows 10 machine if I start it manually.

    Steps I've taken: Task Manager, Startup Tab, File>Run New Task. (browse to location, select.) It will start immediately, but does not show up on the list to autostart, nor does it start on reboot.

    Any suggestions?
