The 0x00000006 or INVALID_PROCESS_DETACH_ATTEMPT error is a non-specific one and could be caused due to improper behavior in a multiprocessor system.

How to fix:

  1. Check for Updates: Make sure your operating system and all your drivers are up-to-date. Windows updates often include patches that fix potential bugs, and outdated drivers can often cause issues.
  2. Disable Unnecessary Startup Programs: Some programs could cause conflict when they start up with your system. Use the System Configuration tool (msconfig) in Windows to disable unnecessary startup programs and services.
  3. Check Your Hardware: If you are using a multiprocessor system, ensure that all processors are working correctly. Check if your system is overheating, as this can cause various issues.
  4. Run System File Checker (SFC): The System File Checker tool can fix potential issues with your system files. Open the Command Prompt as an administrator and type “sfc /scannow” to run this tool.
  5. Use System Restore: If the issue started recently, you could try using System Restore to revert your system to a state before the problem began.
  6. Contact Support: If you’ve tried all these steps and the error still persists, it would be best to contact Microsoft Support for further assistance.

As with any significant changes to your system, always ensure you have a recent backup of all important data to prevent potential data loss.
