It happens that in many cases our computer goes into a loop, in a cycle where it starts and restarts trying to solve "that problem".



When that happens, we're not even allowed to enter the PC's Safe Mode or “Recovery Mode”, as it will always be in that endless loop. While there are workarounds for errors like the one that occurs when your Windows 10 PC shuts down by itself, in this scenario, having the mode disabled is usually a pretty good alternative.
