    I am also curious to find that out. It is always interesting to learn something new about Windows.

    From here:
    Critical System Services (Windows)

    the process killed might be smss.exe, csrss.exe, wininit.exe, logonui.exe, lsass.exe, services.exe, winlogon.exe, System, svchost.exe with RPCSS, and svchost.exe with Dcom/PnP.

    ​i love shutting down this process for force crash xD

    I was unable to reproduce Tonchi's problem by following the steps suggested in this thread, namely:
    1. Deleting the built-in Administrator - didn't work, error 1371
    2. Disabling the built-in Administrator - worked (from under its account)

    The built-in Administrator lost an ability to log on, which is expected. However, this had absolutely no effect on the other administrative account created during the installation. I guess something else was done to mess up the system.

    Correct, something happened to the user profile so the other administrative user lost it's privilege.
    Could be either a file corruption or virus.
