    Win10x64 - Most Recent Update 10/5/19-ish -- CMD Process Dies

    When I try to open the CMD through either "Run" or System32, it very briefly opens but the process immediately dies. I can see the window open in the top right of my monitor but it is only there for a split second.

    Nothing showing in "Task Manager". Nothing I could find relevant in "Event Viewer".
    Tried a "chkdsk /f /r" and issue remains.
    Tried "sfc /scannow" in powershell (alternative option for a CMD module). Found some errors but the .log file didn't have anything I could find relevant. Windows stated it is in the CBS.log (attached).

    Any thoughts? Anyone else experiencing the same issue?

    Hi, it's fine on mine- I have 1903 with the update just released today.

    Can you try it
    a. in safe mode
    b. if ok after a clean boot
    and report the outcome?

    What is your Windows build?

    Thanks for the advice "dalchina". I didn't feel like doing the safe mode inspection or figuring it out. There seemed to be other issues with the system like the cpu being maxed while gaming. I decided to reinstall windows from scratch (have multiple hdd's C: is basically just the OS)
    As of now the CMD does work. Not sure if it's a win10 issue or java, but there is a process from java that starts while gaming that HEAVILY taxes the cpu, that was one of the causes in the prior win10 installation, but as I said there were other issues and I wanted a blank slate.

    Consider this resolved.

    Ok, please mark solved just so people don't look.

    Now's the time- before something goes wrong- to start your disk imaging routine. E.g. Macrium Reflect (free/paid) - free is good enough- and large enough external storage for image files.

    That way you can recover quickly, hopefully without tech help, even if you need to copy your installation to a new PC, the disk dies, your PC becomes unbootable (due to disk content corruption), and have a full backup.
