Questions and Answers

The app tab in win 10 task manager suddenly is empty, "no data available" ran sfc no help. any ideas/?

In last week, the "app" tab shows no apps, it is blank' there is a message where the apps belong saying "no data available." deleting usage and reopening task manager does nothing. finally just ran system file checker, found d no problems, but still no apps on the app tab. did I set an app setting that might have done this? if so, any idea where the setting is? This is a new problem, my apps have always been listed in task manager so I could see who the disk hogs were. I have been using task manager for 15 years, I know how to use the tabs, I can't find anyone on line except winaero.com to suggest a solution: run sfc. I did that, no change. Microsoft keeps telling me everything about task manager except how to deal with a blank app tab. anyone else had same problem have an idea what's happened. is there a setting in settings that I might have accidently changed? otherwise I might have a virus not being detected by webroot or malwarebytes. I have tried: I have tried checking online, at microsoft, ran virus/malware scans, updated system file checker and scanned, no problems found by any scan. I'm not in tiny footprint mode, the apps should be listed there, no? I think it was caused by: I'm out of ideas, my disc use sometimes hits 100%, and I can't find the culprit without the app tab showing how much crt time the various apps are using.
