You have certainly given us plenty to go on.

What operating system are you using.? Is this a recent problem? Have you installed anything prior to the problem arising?

have a look in Event Viewer and see if any clues/explanation there, look for yellow with ! in it.

Are you using Avast Anti-virus? This has been known to produce this problem when updating the Avast.

If your answer to this is 'Yes', then I would try a different A-Virus.

Can find clues/explanation in Event Viewer there with anything yellow with it

Also for Nontek, I have Norton for Anti-virus

Any other ideals from anyone?

A console application is one that does not have a GUI, but instead relies on text input and output via a command prompt window of some sort.

Seems it is the Cmd Window

microsoft.com

There is a possibility that one of the conhost.exe is a virus so do the relevant antivirus/malware scans and checks. Other than that it may be a program you have installed that is misbehaving or not installed correctly. You might get some clues from Taskmanager on processes that are running or stalled.

A couple of good links on ClickHere that will help in troubleshooting to find out which program is causing problem.
