  1. Windows task host preventing shutdown


    Hi, I have the Windows Task Host preventing shut down just now before got out of the house to work. I tried the troubleshooting method, didn’t work, edit the registry, didn’t work. Checked update, didn’t see anything needed to be update, didn’t checked the optional updates.Did a quick search online, one comment said that it’s due to a Windows Update back in July, KB5015879, the person uninstall that update and it back to normal.Thing is I couldn’t found it in the list of install updates. Maybe I missed it due to late getting to work, but skimming through it didn’t found it.So is there any way

    :)

  3. Task Host Window is Preventing Shutdown

    I am using Windows 10 with surface pro 4. When I tried to shut down the computer normally, it says Task Host Window is closing background tasks and is preventing shutdown. I tried waiting it out but it just popped me back to desktop. I tried checking for
    updates and it said I was on the latest updates. I tried running Troubleshoot on Power settings and it didn't work. I also tried sfc/scannow and it said there were some corrupted files that could not be fixed. However when I tried to look at the list of corrupted
    files by using the command

    the command prompt said sfcdetails.txt couldn't be found. I tried doing a clean boot but it required restarting the computer and the Task Host Window prevented restart. I didn't want to do a force shut down and I don't know what to do. Can someone help?
