  1. taskkill.exe is broken

    Under some conditions, taskkill.exe stops working for my processes.

    taskkill /f /im my.exe
    ERROR: The process "my.exe" with PID 16844 could not be terminated.
    Reason: There is no running instance of the task.

    Running from elevated console doesn't help. The process is visible in task manager.

    Following helps and doesn't even require elevated console, works from normal one:

    wmic process where name="my.exe" call terminate
    Executing (\\CONST-PC\ROOT\CIMV2:Win32_Process.Handle="16844")->terminate()
    Method execution successful.
    Out Parameters:
    instance of __PARAMETERS
    ReturnValue = 0;

    Could you please fix the bug in taskkill.exe?

    I don't like neither wmic nor task manager.

    Is my graphics card broken?

    UPDATE: Please see here.

    I have a Sapphire HD 4830.

    When I boot into XP all is initially fine and I am able to see the desktop.

    However, when I click on the start bar and navigate a few steps, I receive an immediate white screen of death and a total irrecoverable lock-up.

    I am confused about what this could mean and I would be grateful for any suggestions on the best course of action to test and repair the problem.

    Does this sort of issue suggest that the graphics card is irretrievably broken?

    taskkill.exe is broken

    Mail app will not open on 10041.

    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. taskkill.exe is broken :)

    In this Windows 10 build 10041, the Mail, Calendar, and People apps may be broken due to a licensing issue with the Store Beta. To get these apps working again, you need to follow these steps:

    • Open powershell as administrator
    • Run the command Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like “*windowscommunicationsapps*”} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    • Re-install Mail, People and Calendar from the Store (green tile)
