    Windows Command Processor


    I download the and burned the iso image when the consumer preview became available.

    I was getting an error from the action center that said wcpotherfailure3.

    This morning I decided to download and burn the iso again to see if it was something with the previous image.

    After the install with the new image in the startup section of task manager I something called windows command processor running. This was never running in the previous installations I've done.

    Is this supposed to be running?

    Thanks in advance

    The 'Windows Command Processor' process belongs to command prompt, which is not usually running unless you or an application that runs in that environment have opened it. If you can post a screenshot of your running processes from Task Manager, it may help.

    The pic is what I'm getting in start up now. The last 2 are the running processes. i don't know what I'm doing to cause the Windows command process run at start up. Should I just disable it?

    Yes. Better to delete the registry entry to rid it permanently.
