It seems to be system processes that cannot open for some reason. If I open a third party application like Process Explorer and run that as administrator I can, however, if I open task manager with administrator rights it never opens and consent.exe just hangs. I tried this in safe mode and everything works just fine.

 

I had just finished doing a malware scan (Malware Bytes, SuperAntiSpyware, JRT, Combofix, etc...)

Try running "sfc /scannow" in an elevated CMD prompt with out the quotes.

After playing around with it some more it seems to be fixed. I hate Windows!
