If you create a new user on Windows (make it Admin), log in that user and open the Task Manager, does it stay open or not?

This wasn't supposed to fix it :P Can you attach the fixlog.txt that was created following the fix I made you run? I want to see if it succeeded. This fix enables full appcrash dumps, and I'll need them to troubleshoot the taskmgr.exe issue.

Awesome. Now, restart your computer, and open the Task Manager a few times to make it crash. Once done, run the fix below and attach the "DATE-TIME.zip" file that will be on your desktop.

Might have found something. Press on the Windows + R keys, type in perfmon in the Run box and press on Enter. This should open the Performance Monitor. Does it works?

Alright, we'll take care of this after, I'll write it down. Are you able to open the Task Manager now?

Also, do you have access to a USB Flash Drive? If so, how big is it?
