Your computer is shutting down because it thinks that there could be an error in the important file kernel 32.dll
click here;en-us;314474. If the computer works properly in all other respects, then I think it is more likely that there was an error in the photo file.

The checksum is a mathematical device that checks the integrity of the data. The image has a binary number added to it, the computer performs a mathematical process on the data and compares the resulting checksum with that imported with the image, and if the two checksums agree, then the data hasn't been corrupted. A similar checksum process is generally performed when you download files from the internet, and your computer performs a checksum test on the BIOS data at bootup for the same reason.

I'll try that Microsoft link again with some spaces added to avoid corruption http: //;en-us;314474
