PowerShell Not Starting


For some reason, PowerShell no longer opens on my computers. Opening PowerShell displays the following but never finishes opening and never displays a prompt:

PowerShell was working fine yesterday, and I did not install any new programs or any Windows updates. Has anyone else experienced this and been able to fix this issue?

Thank you.


This happened to me a few days ago, and while I didn’t run with NoProfile, I ended up clearning the profile and modules in use from my user profile. After I did that, Windows Terminal began working again. I restored my custom profiles and the problem did not return.
