  • Hi,

    I would like to confirm:
    (1) Windows version and build (Windows 7 ?)
    (2) How to start PowerShell (from cmd.exe ?)

    Regards,

  • Hi,

    Did any error pop up after a few seconds? When did the issue happen, did it happen after you perform an upgrade?

    Run the application via directory C:\Users\***\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Windows PowerShell to see if it will work.

    Here are a few steps that can help you narrow down the issue:

    1.Change a account with administrator permission to login and test again.

    2.Run SFC /SCANNOW in cmd as administrator to fix the corrupted system files.

    3.If the error message is Restricted access, type the regedit in Search Box and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\DisallowRun. In the right panel, check if the Powershell is listed. If it is list, try to delete it.

    4.Go to Event Log to see if there is any related errors exist.

    5.Right click the application and choose Properties-Font tab,change the font and reopen it.

    6.Uninstall and reinstall the framework.

  • Please check the following:

    1) can you open and use administrative command prompt?

    2) can you use the start menu and task bar without problems with other icons?

    3) if you switch users can you use powershell?

    Perform the following steps:

    1) open administrative command prompt and type or copy and paste:

    2) sfc /scannow

    3) dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    4) net user test /add

    5) When these have completed > right click on the top bar or title bar of the administrative command prompt box > left click on edit then select all > right click on the top bar again > left click on edit then copy > paste into the thread

    6) shutdown /r

    7) when the computer reboots sign on with the new user named test > check powershell > report results into the thread for the new user.

    It's the same problem with me. Maybe it occurs on windows 10 only, because it worked in windows 7.
