  • Hi Diana,

    You can try to change Data Execution Prevention settings to troubleshoot the problem.

    If it is turn on, please try to turn off. If it is turn off, please try to trun on. Then, test the issue again.

    Also, it is recommended to take a clean boot to check if it is a incompatibility problem.

    1. Click Start, type "MSCONFIG" (without the quotations) in the Search Bar and Press "Enter" to start the System Configuration Utility.
    2. Click the "Services" tab, check the "Hide All Microsoft Services" box and click "Disable All".
    3. Click the "Startup" tab, click "Disable All" and click "OK".
    4. Restart the computer and test this issue in Clean Boot.

    Note: Clean Boot is a troubleshooting step. If some programs have been disabled, we can re-enable them later. If you see the System Configuration Utility, check the box of "Don't show this message" and then click "OK".

    Please test this issue in the Clean Boot environment, if the issue disappears, we can use a 50/50 approach to quickly narrow down which entry is causing the issue.

    Hope it helps.
