If you are finding that your Windows KVM VPS is frequently shutting itself down without you telling it to, you can view the Event Logs for more information on what is causing the crash.

You may find that it is because of wlms.exe, which has been linked to an issue with Windows not being activated. Please ensure that your Windows installation is activated and has a valid license, and you should not encounter this error any more.
