Paint.net causes a system restart


Recommended Posts

When I was using paint.net my computer suddenly began restarting. There was nothing I could do to cancel it, and there was no warning.

After my system was restarted, I looked in the event viewer and saw this:


The process msiexec.exe has initiated the restart of computer KGN1 on behalf of user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM for the following reason: No title for this reason could be found
 Reason Code: 0x80030002
 Shutdown Type: restart
 Comment: The Windows Installer initiated a system restart to complete or continue the configuration of 'paint.net'.


Please don't restart my system just because you need to update. 

And also, I had disabled the automatic check for updates in paint.net, but that didn't seem to have any affect.

After restart, paint.net is in version 4.2.8 (I don't know which version I was using before the reboot). I'm using WIndows 10.
