Hello, I'd really appreciate some help on this. A friend gave me this computer and I don't know what he was doing but it came like this, where 5-30 minutes after connecting to the internet I get an error message that says "Windows has encountered a critical error and will restart in 1 minute". The message header says "You are about to be logged off". I purged any viruses or malware that might be there by trying numerous scanners and fixers on tech spot but the problem persists and they are stumped. After getting the message, I can't open anything important like windows firewall, ccleaner, or event viewer, instead I get a message like "The endpoint mapper database entry could not be created." But one time I had event viewer open before the error, and I screencapped an error event by Wininit at around the same time so I'm thinking Wininit could be a clue, but where do I go from there?

Thanks.

Check Windows System files integrity

  • open the Command Prompt as Administrator (Tutorial)
  • type the following command and press Enter:
    sfc /scannow
    
    Note: This may take some time to finish.

    if it doesn't say "No integrity violations found" them do this:
  • In the command prompt window, type or Copy & Paste the following:
    findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >"%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt"
  • Close the command prompt.
  • Attach to your post the sfcdetails.txt file that was just placed on your Desktop
  • You can safely delete the sfcdetails.txt file afterwards if you like

Thank you for your help. Sorry for the late reply. I installed linux on the second hdd to have something that works but I screwed up the other one because I guess there was some kind of RAID config between the two. So I just said screw it and installed linux over everything. Problem solved haha
