I'm troubleshooting a critical error message I receive in the event log. It's the same as has been previously reported here. Prior to upgrading to Windows 10, my system was running Windows 7 Pro SP1. When running my previous OS (WIN 7) I rarely had errors listed in Event Viewer. Now after upgrading to Windows 10, I get errors/warnings I never used to get under Windows 7. I have performed a clean install of Win 10 and still am receiving error messages.

The error I would like help with today is of the "Critical" level in Event Viewer.


After doing a normal shutdown, and then booting my system, I check Event Viewer and always find the following critical error:

"The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."

I never used to get this error after doing a normal shutdown (prior to upgrade to Windows 10, when I was on Windows 7). Now it happens all the time.

Can you help me figure out why this error is occurring after doing a normal shutdown followed by a boot? As mentioned above, I recently performed a clean install of Win 10 64-bit, and am on build version 10586.36

My system runs fine, yet I get the above error (and a number of other errors) even after the performed the clean install of Windows 10.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
