  1. Hello,
    So recently my computer has been acting up. I did a scan with Microsoft Security Essentials, and started getting the error, "windows has encountered a critical error will restart in one minute" every time I logged in. This occurs in safe mode as well. I do not know what the thing it could of been from that I installed because there was a couple things I had installed.
