Anaconda download and jupyter kernel error

I have been looking on git/S.O., google, Dell, Microsoft, and other sites to try and fix this issue for weeks!!! I am able to load Jupyter Notebook and Lab but I keep getting the kernel error similar to below, this particular copy and past was when I created a virtual environment to try and work around the Base, I see this error almost exactly when I load jupyter, also when I install, and now when creating a virtualenv. I have uninstalled and re-installed 3 or 4 times, install package is 64 bit Python3 for windows… I have reset my DLL files with: DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

Please help!!!
