    Windows 10 Critcal_Process_Died error

    I did a second PC installing windows 10 last night from DVD.
    After getting up this morning I had a blue screen showing for a repair option?

    The repair option failed, so I did a restore, it started over took a long time.
    Had to setup everthing again.

    After getting back into the OS in just a few minutes I now get "Critical_Process_Died".
    computer freezes, same problem.

    This was a fresh install, on an older computer I built several years ago.
    What should I do next, thanks for your help.

    Have you tried sfc /scannow command yet? This will find Corrupted system files if any. Also make sure your current drivers are all upto date.

    Try few more things mentioned here if needed Fix "Critical_Process_Died" Error in Windows 8 & 10 | Fix Errors

    Nope cant get into safe mode now, doesn't see the drive so it may be bad.
    MiniTool says the MBR is bad, so if I cant fix it, might as well just get a new box.
    In the beginning I could reload the OS now I cant seem too.

    This home built one is 12 years old so maybe its time now. Wife's computer so it gets no hard usage.

    Anyways I appreciate the response.

    OK, I tried something that looks like it worked.

    Using MiniTool I completely deleted the partition, erased it with all zeros, then started over.
    Its not rebooting randomly anymore and seems to be stable....crossing my fingers this install holds.

    This morning all I had was a black screen, nothing?

    So I remembered when I built this system it had a secondary ATA controller on board.
    Intel made them that way before they were integrated.
    Sure enough, device manager showed it disabled. I looked at the link
    above and it gave info on looking for this.

    When back into BIOS and disabled it there, I have no devices attached to it
    so it's not needed.

    Now it starts better and a lot faster, still crossing my fingers this was it
    together with disk corruption.

    Worked fine for a day and 1/2, now this morning back to same blue screen
    so I give up. Friend of mine has been urging me to buy a Mac, this is incentive.

    Been a windows user since win 3.0, but windows 10 looks like nothing but trouble.
    I'll keep my own box and buy a new one for the wife, just not worth the time and aggravation.
