    Unable to terminate process when not responding

    I was running a Photoshop app on my PC, and the program completely froze, so I tried to end the process, but apparently I keep getting this "Unable to terminate process: access is denied". But I'm a administrator. I HAD to restart the entire PC, luckily
    I saved my work before this happened.

    Unable to terminate process, The operation could not be completed

    Windows Updated(16299.309).KB4088776 Restart is required to complete.


    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond Unable to terminate process, The operation could not be completed :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.
