I ended processes such as lsm.exe and a prompt came up telling me what Windows has encountered a critical problem and that it will restart in one minute. Even though the process has ended (and remains closed), Windows OPERATES PERFECTLY FINE AND NORMALLY. Why does Windows have to shut down when I am ending something that is not necessary for operation of the system? I am wondering if there is a way to prevent the shutting down / automatic restarting of Windows when a "critical" system process has ended? The computer runs better with this garbage turned off and Windows is having hissy fits for no reason. Thanks!
