    Ok, that was not the great fix that I hoped. Removing the program and rebooting did indeed resolve the issue. The error windows stopped appearing every few seconds. That is the good news. ...

    I don't understand. I cannot see children processes because I can't find the main process. I just ran it and collected nearly 300000 events, but I cannot find 'NT Kernel' in there at all. If...

    Yeah, that's the plan. I really can't think of anything else to try without the install. Thing is, because ReImage didn't fix it, it shouldn't be part of windows itself which is screwing up. The...
