WinKey + R => %windir%\system32\taskmgr.exe /7 OK or Enter

or

WinKey + R => cmd.exe => OK => %windir%\system32\taskmgr.exe /7 => Enter

or make desktop shortcut (link)

%windir%\system32\taskmgr.exe /7

Opera,

 

        Thanks.   I don't know what happened as I just copied the URL straight from the address bar.  That is the page to which I was referring.

 

         I think between that and the manual invocation or desktop shortcut methods already mentioned all bases have been covered.

If you updated from the previous version of windows that might occur.
If this is a fresh install of Windows 10 you should be looking for a hardware failure.

Before You'll look for more, run
sfc.exe /scannow
Must at first open command prompt and run it as administrator (or powershell and run as administrator)
Win Key + R => cmd.exe => properties => Advanced => Run as administrator => cmd.exe /scannow
If there is something, what cannot fixed, run this
findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt
where c is the the drive, where is windows installed, or simply
%windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt
It make a logfile on desktop.

 

If there is no problems, is likely problem with registry.

If everything else works normally, it's not a virus. Hardly believable.

Before you would ever bother getting into log analysis you really should run an SFC and DISM (if necessary) to see what the actual results they give you are.

 

 

Very often that will be sufficient.   I don't suspect a virus or malware either.   Those messages indicate missing Java files, so you may want to reinstall the Java Runtime Environment after dealing with the SFC/DISM.

Hi. . .

 

Bring up an ADMIN CMD prompt/screen.

 

Type taskmgr

 

Does Task Manager come up?

 

If not, what does the CMD screen say?

 

Regards. . .

If you have actually tried all of the suggestions you've been given so far to no avail, were I you I would seriously consider starting a new thread on the "Am I infected?  What do I do?" forum and briefly list the peculiar behaviors you've been seeing.
