    If I'm understanding correctly when I click the link below it it brings me to here.

    Start, stop, pause, resume, or restart a service: Management Services

    It don't bring me to a answer. But I did a Google search of Abnormally Terminated Services Check and I read several things that point to running command (sfc /scannow) and the DISM / Restore Health which I did but it presented the same error. Never did find out what it actually means.

    No it just scans for system integrity issues. For malware you need to use Malware-bytes and do a system scan with that to remove any malware. For browser issues you need to post a topic going to https://www.eightforums.com/browsers-mail/

    I've never had a slowdown & I run the batch file several times a week.

    Is the batch file you refer to the "SFC /Scannow" command function ?

    @ David Bailey.. Thanks for the feedback
    One more question please - is is acceptable to continue using my browser, or other programs such as Word, Excel, etc, while those commands are running?
    Or is it better to just let them run, and complete, with no other programs running on my PC?
    I ask this because they take a long time to complete on my PC
