After running a Error Check on my C:\ drive, I restarted to find the following error:

 

            avgnt.exe - Bad Image

            

                 C:\Windows\System32\MPR.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or contains an error.

                 Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system 

                  administrator or the software vendor for support. Error statis 0xc0000020.

 

Trying to close this message results in it immediately popping back up after a second or two.

 

I am not sure what this means or how to fix it - please help!

A few minutes of web research strongly suggests that this is an issue with Avira antivirus.  See this page on the Microsoft Community Forums.

 

I'd first try a standard uninstall/reinstall of Avira (if that's what you're using, otherwise I'd do more web searches to see what else might have a process named avgnt.exe) to see if that fixes the problem.

 

If it doesnt, see John Carrona's (our own usasma) antivirus removal webpage, and use the Avira "scrubber" he gives the link to then try reinstalling it after the scrub.

Avira and Avast both seem to be causing some big issues with Win10 at the moment. I wouldn't mind betting there are other AV packages with issues too. If you're using any AV software other than Defender, I would try disabling and using Defender for the purpose of diagnosis.

Totally agree, and to be honest Windows 10 defender is pretty good for AV at the moment.
