Wins 10, Critical process died. Solution?

I left one of my laptops on for an afternoon. When I came back it showed this message. Never seen this one before. Wins couldn't repair it nor can I use system restore. Then tried command prompt, went through the process and just couldn't get it back. Stuck in a loop. Maybe just have to reinstall wins but will lose my files as I can't get into wins to save them. Any helpful ideas?

Just to add wins could not repair it too.

Do you use Acronis or Macrium for backups? If you have the recovery medium from either boot from it and restore a backup.

If not try powering on and off a few times. If you can eventually get to CMD type bcdedit /set {default} safeboot then power off and on again - see if you can get to safe mode to troubleshoot.

Spent an afternoon trying out various options but none had worked. Fresh installing Wins 10 now. Probably caused by an update.
