I note this entry many times in the event log for the system:
"A fatal alert was generated and sent to the remote endpoint. This may result in termination of the connection. The TLS protocol defined fatal error code is 70. The Windows SChannel error state is 105."
Windows 8 Terminal Service connection terminated when using TS Gateway
suggests the following Vista Hotfix:
Network connectivity fails when you try to use Windows Vista behind a firewall device
Seems rather like the:
- issue - a firewall problem and an auto tuning problem.
W8 also has a habit of hanging (not responding) - various apps and procedures - for 20-45' at random times.
When the network connection fails, the following programs may crash or respond slowly:
- Microsoft Outlook or Windows Mail
- Web browsers, such as Windows Internet Explorer 7
- Remote Desktop Connection (RDC)
- File sharing programs"
Of course Windows8 is probably phoning home all the time with error reports. I think you need to explicitly opt out during the interactive phase of setup, rather than accept the express option. For me in the UK, the express setup leaves me with a US keyboard in the 32-bit version, but properly lets me choose my location in the 64-bit version asking my postcode.
The chkdsk/ file corruption is a symptom of the forced restart on the locked up system.
