Windows/10 Hangs

Three months ago we replaced 13 workstations with Dell Optiplex/Windows 10 workstations.  12 of the 13 are working fine - but one, unfortunately that workstation is used by the owner of the firm.  Every so often the computer simply hangs and not being on site i was told that the computer showed an error message saying something about "allowing" some program to run.  The users are so intimated by the owner that they restart the unit without recording the error message.  About 5 weeks ago i applied all outstanding updates and we had no issues for almost a month.  Then a few days ago the hanging started again,  I reviewed the logs and below is the last entry before the hanging.  It said the problem can be corrected by changing the permissions but i am not sure how to do that.  Any help would be appreciated,

Because of the nature of the errors and length of time, try doing a Windows 10 Repair install and Keep Everything. See if that improves the quality of operation.

Go to the Media Creation Link:

Windows 10 is running, so click on the Download button (not Upgrade Button, select Save.
Create a USB Windows Installation key and then run Setup on the USB Key.
This will launch the Repair and proceed normally.

If you run Repair Install, it leaves you where you started and fixes error on the way. So there is a good chance it will help.

Then if not, the problem is bigger.

Your solution will work, unfortunately the client has not allowed me to rebuild his workstation.  Also checked with Dell and they agreed with your approach.

Thank you
