I actually kind of got the same problem. After a while of using my PC, some programs will start in a suspended state. Manually resuming that process via Resource Monitor does work, but the problem is really weird.

I have a similar problem. For example, I will try to install a browser like Opera from the opera.exe file on my desktop. I left-click the file as always (after making sure it's unlocked after downloading it from the website), and...nothing. The Opera setup problem is running as a process, or two or three of them, but it does not start to install. Sometimes, it will partially install but die halfway through. The really weird thing is, when I go into Safe mode, I have no problems. Weird. I've also do sfc on my machine and no problems.

to install programs, try Safe Mode. That worked for me.
to install, try safe mode.

thank you very much for this input i hope it helps anyone else that has the issue i got frustrated and just rolled back to the current version of windows 10 i have no issues at this time anymore thanks again


Same problem to me on build 17046.

All apps that start in administration mode get stucked in background (visible in task manager).
If I deactivate DEP in Windows Defender, they start normal.
So, is this a problem of Windows Explorer or just Windows Defender / DEP?
I reported this already (twice) in insider programm Feedback!
