    windows 10

    event id 41 after restoring an image with macrium reflect free why ?

    every time I restore my windows 10 with an image created with macrium reflect free
    the image restore without any proplem and windows 10 works good

    but when I check event viewer I see event id 41 (unexpected shutdown)
    why ?
    no unexpected shutdown happened and no blue screen also
    so why that error every time I restore an image with macrium reflect free ?
    many people had this .

    Hi Yafatana,

    I've seen this "unexpected shutdown" error on some forums and I believe it to be related to a recent windows update. Anyways, if your computer is now starting up and shutting down fine and works ok then you don't need to worry about it. I always follow the adage "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." No need to worry about it.

    I have another theory. When you made that image, windows was up and running. When you restored that image, and windows booted up, it checks to see if there was a normal shutdown previously, Obviously there was no shut down. With that windows issues the event error.
