    Critical_Process_Died for Windows 10/Disk at 100% on start up


    I upgraded my computer to Windows 10 from 8.1. After around a week of using Windows 10, each time I turned on my computer, I get a blue screen saying that the computer will restart. Like in the following picture.

    Once it restarts, I can a log in and everything is fine. Except for one thing. When I open task manager, it says that my disk is filled at 100%, and the main program that is causing this is called "system".

    I tried to increase the virtual memory, as seen in the next picture (I have 8GB of RAM by the way)

    But that still does not seem to work. I downloaded seatools and it says that it is not a disk failure.
    Is there a possible correlation between the Critical_Process_Died startup page and the 100% disk usage?

    If you mean how long it takes until your system restarts, it should restart automatically once the information is gathered (this is default)
