Hi Sylveon,
please run

sfc /scannow (note the space)

Reboot

open the app, then try killing it.

Wouldn't hurt to run your AV/antimalware progs just in case.

I have experienced this a few times.
I usually just reboot my PC.

Have you tried killing the process using the Command Prompt (or PowerShell)?
