Program Manager

I thought Program Manager was in Windows 3
Why is it in Win 10?
On shutdown, occasionally the pc hangs with a message saying Program Manager is still running
At times it will freeze indefinitely
After running several malware and virus scanners the system reports no abnormalities
Can I safely hunt down and kill this beast?

Can you open an admin command prompt. Run sfc /scannow followed by dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

Prob with Cleanup command was a typo.
D'oh!

So....now that everything is back up and running smoothly (24 hours and counting) I am wondering why Program Manager reared its head in Win 10.
Glitch? Throwback surprise?

Normally it's file corruption when taking updates that does it. So for major feature updates, I always end up clean installing.
