    windows 10 task manager not running correctly


    I tend use the task manager a lot, mainly for peace of mind.

    However today, 25th Aug 2019, it started doing strange things. The process list was saying various programmes were taking a lot of cpu, the wifi graph was empty.


    All this turned out to be because it was not updating at all, i.e. it was stuck.


    When run as a privelged user it all works perfectly. But for a normal user it no longer works. Tried launching it various ways: comman line, shortcuts, menu items, ctrlaltdel..... No difference.


    Running windows 10, full patched and updated (that i'm aware of).


    Has something changed?


    ideas?

    :)

    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?

    Task Manager not running


    I have added a new task to the ones already populated which I suppose were in Win7
    The new task or the present tasks are not running as there is no entry in the history or
    recently run file
    are there other steps necessary to get the new task manager to start up ?

    Task manager doesn't run in Windows 10

    Hello Paul,

    Thank you for posting your concern in Microsoft community and welcome to the Windows 10 Family.

    From the description provided, I understand that you are facing functionality issues with Task Manager in Windows 10 after using a third party application to transfer data.

    I suggest you to follow the below methods and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

    Method 1:

    This issue may happen due to system file corruption. I suggest you to run System file checker. System File checker (SFC) scan is done to check if there are any corrupted system files that could be causing this issue. Kindly follow
    the below given steps:


    • Press Windows key + X, select
      Command prompt (Admin) to bring up elevated Command prompt.

    • In Command prompt type
      sfc/scannow
      and press enter.
    • Restart the computer.

    Method 2:

    If no corrupted system files were found in the previous state, then I suggest you to try the following steps to employ the DISM command lines:


    • Open command prompt by pressing Windows key + X and selecting “Command prompt admin”.

    • In command prompt, type the following commands and press Enter after each command:
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth



    • Close the command prompt and restart the PC and check if it works.

    Kindly keep us posted on the status of the issue. If it still persists, we would be happy to help you.

    Thank You.
