Have you ever received an error message saying “Windows Has Recovered from a Serious Error” while starting up the PC? It is common that you will be prompted to send a report to the Microsoft for troubleshooting purpose when the computer has a serious error. But the problem is that, sometimes you are asked to send reports every time at PC startup even if no error occurred during the previous session. This is because the paging file continues to have a flag set that indicates that a Minidump file must be written even though it has been written properly.

Windows serious error

To get rid of the “Windows Has Recovered from a Serious Error” message, you can directly recreate the pagefile. To do this, follow these steps to go:

*Right click My Computer to select Properties.
* On the Advanced tab, click Settings within the Performance section.
*In the Virtual Memory section, click Change.
* For Paging file size for selected drive, click No Paging File, and then click Set.
*Click Yes if the following warning appears: If the paging file on volume X: has an initial size of less than xx megabytes, then the system may not be able to create a debugging information file if a STOP error occurs. Continue anyway?
Note that X is the drive letter and xx is the amount of RAM installed on your computer minus 1 megabyte.
* Click System Managed Size.
* Click OK four times, and then restart the computer when prompted.

Then, restart the computer again to see whether the “The system has Recovered from a Serious Error” message has been solved or not. If not, click “Don’t send” button, and then completely scan the whole PC for all viruses and remove them all. Virus attack in your computer has the ability to ruin your computer, your financial status, destroy any system file, steal your identity, and make use of your computer as a hijack system to attack other computers and so on. If the computer cannot locate the required file to repair the system or start up the PC correctly as normal, a serious error message will appear again and again. By the way, to keep the antivirus up to date and running in the background is highly recommended so as to make PC run smoothly all the time without unexpected application error or computer crashes.

Thirdly, you still need to check and maintain hard disk. Hard disk is the place that stores the files and folders on the computer. This way, the computer can access them correctly and run properly without issue. But when something goes missing, corrupted or broken, things will be different. That is, you will come to the chance to get various “The system has Recovered from a Serious Error” messages when the system cannot access the desired files/folders as it likes. Hence, to regularly maintain the hard disk is a must so as to ensure the smooth running of the computer all the time:
*Frequently uninstall the unwanted programs, applications
*Completely remove the useless files, folders from the PC
*Timely check and fix hard disk bad sectors or other errors
*Run SFC one regular period to check & fix missing system files

Finally, scan and fix computer registry errors. Even though it plays as the main component of the Windows-based operating system, registry on the other side can bring in some unexpected Windows serious error messages to the computer. You will start to notice some growth in your registry as you find the computer slows down gradually and does not perform like it used to. Yeah, it is a fact that as you install/uninstall programs, add/remove folders, or when the computer gets infected, the Windows registry gets bloated will some useless, broken or invalid entries. All of these can make the computer run improperly or even stop you from starting it up. The final thing you should do to get rid of the “The system has Recovered from a Serious Error” message is to download and run a professional registry cleaner to completely scan and remove all errors within the registry. Only in this way, can you run the computer and perform all your desired requests correctly.

In my opinion, the frequent “Windows Has Recovered from a Serious Error” messages at PC startup can be very annoying. Even though it most of the time is helpful, sometimes it indicates a problem on the PC and has to be fixed immediately. Perform the above steps right now, and you will be able to troubleshoot and fix any errors on the PC.
