Hi I was browsing the net with my Windows 8 computer and I accidentally pressed the power button in the keyboard. As everybody knows that shut down the computer. When I tried to turn it on again I got the error message stated in the title: "Windows 8 critical process died" and the computer restarted and it continues in a loop after that. I tried to repair it with the installation disc and also to refresh the system but I got an error at 95% completion of refreshing process and the automatic repair doesn't work so none of those solutions worked. I want to save some files I have and also the installed programs and settings which are considerable large and will have me busy for some hours if I must re-install everything. I was hoping that somebody more experienced here have a better solution than just a clean install. Thanks in advance.

Some troubleshooting and further prevention methods -

- Use the backup if you have made it at any point in the past.
- Clean install must happen if you have no backup at all.
- At startup smash F8 key so rapidly that your keyboard begs you to stop. Then choose the best option for you (Last known good configuration).
- Grab windows 8 DVD and throw it out of the window like a cool frisbee and buy Windows 7 Home Premium or Professional Edition to prevent fatal issues in future.

You probably deleted a very important system file which resulted in this issue.

This is very easy to fix, all just need to remember is our windows 97 commands and it is very simple as that.

Every thing is sorted out once after getting in to "safe mode with command prompt"

But the problem is getting to the "safemode" in Win8

as it restarts it will pop a screen in a sequence you will find the advance option with which u can attain the "Safe mode with command prompt"

in the command prompt type: sfc /scannow and wait until it run 100% after which try restart your computer. It should work fine as it was earlier.

I tried the same
It says:
There is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete. Restart windows and run sfc again.
I restarted many times but doesn't work
