Can’t start ANY! virtual machine on VMWorkstation 16 after a few days of usage it (Windows 10)

This post was originally published on this site

I have a problem on Windows 10. Yesterday I just closed virtual machines on my notebook as usual (I use Workstation 16 for some time already)

and today no any virtual machine is able to start. It shows all the time spinning logo of VMWare bios. 

mksSandbox.log has old date and contents. Tail of vmware.log has new date/time and is below…
