    Looks like a failed installation. Have you installed any software lately?
    Have you run an anti virus scan?

    cheers, Paul

    I uninstalled VIRB Edit 4.1.1 and reinstalled VIRB Edit 3.6

    I run Windows Defender and it has not detected any threats.

    Just ran Mal-ware bytes and it discovered the following in the Huerstic area of its scan.

    Removed the threats identified by Mal-ware bytes and system booted up without further errors.

    Your screenshot of Malwarebytes results lists three Trojan virus objects and three rootkit virus objects. Those would have been causing your startup errors.

    What areas of operation should I pay attention to for whatever damage those virus may have caused 'long term'?

    You might want to try Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit. This is BETA software. So use as your own risk.

    NOTE: BE SURE TO BACKUP YOUR SYSTEM BEFORE RUNNING THIS.

    Windows Defender Offline is also available in Settings > Update & security > Windows Defender.
    Create a fresh drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!
