Windows 10 laptop that is running the latest Windows Updates. After some amount of time (min 15 minutes) after bootup, if I try to shutdown the laptop, I will get a list of apps that are preventing shutdown. One of these apps is not displaying any info about it and has a generic icon. I don't have a process name so if I look at Task Manager, all of the processes have a name, so it is hard to manually match it up that way. Can I use procmon to figure out what this process is? If so, please give me some tips on how to figure it out?
