    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?

    How long does the blue screen stay on?

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