I am currently faced with an issue with my task manager where when I open it, it immediately closes after .5/1 second(s). I think I might've downloaded some file somewhere earlier but I already deleted my recent downloads. I tried /taskkill command using cmd since I found 2 console tasks that were suspicious but once I killed them, they just come back immediately. I will be highlighting the 2 tasks in the attached photos (mservicecpu.exe and xservicegpu.exe). Although I'm not really sure whether these 2 are the cause of my problem since no results come out when I try to search for them on Google. I have also tried FRST and JRT, and will be attaching the corresponding files/results below.

I've done so many fixes but haven't yet resolved the issue. I really need some help. It opens as shown in the attached photo but closes. 1612703922461.png

I've attached everything I've done so far to fix the problem. The Fixlist (attached below) I used came from a topic I posted somewhere else https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/270238-task-manager-immediately-closing-after-opening/
But since their spam protection system won't let me reply to the comment of someone, I came here to ask for further help.
