Critical Process Died

  1. #11


    So today I was installing some programs and after a while I got this error again when I restarted the computer, I was able to figure out that the problem was caused by "Advanced System Care 6" program, it looks like it deletes some important stuff and gives out this error, the computer was able to actually do something after this error and it's running now.

    I don't know what to do right now, was thinking about formating it or just re-install the OS, any idea?
    It looks like if I just close the computer and not shut it off it's fine.
    I won't restart it for now, scared it might give that error again.

    Also when I restarted it, right when it started in the Asus logo screen below it was a text that said: "Scanning and fixing disk errors.", is there any commands to find these errors and fix them from your desktop like there was in Windows 7?

    Also I have scanned for errors on C: (where everything I have is) and it doesn't give any error, but I'm not trusting that 100%.

    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!


    Did you run the hardware diagnostics that I suggested previously?
    If not, please do so.

    If it fails the hard drive - then the hard drive is probably dying. Backup your stuff immediately
    If it doesn't fail the hard drive - then there's something corrupting your data and causing the disk checks.

    Have you restored the computer to factory state with the recovery disks? If not, please do so. If the problems still continue, then you'll have to start looking for hardware issues that we can't test with the diagnostics (or return it for another one).

    Well my computer had to restart anyway because since I had avast! installed and it crashed my computer with another BSOD, and it was able to restart just fine I uninstalled avast! and installed Windows Defender.
    And for the last few hours I haven't had any trouble, I can restart just fine and what not, I guess my HD didn't get damaged, like the last one did, what I think caused it was that pretty much everytime you restart ASC defraged a few files and I guess Windows didn't like that too much.
    I'll run that bootable HD check.
