The error check STATUS_SYSTEM_PROCESS_TERMINATED has the value 0xC000021A. This means that an error has occurred in a large user mode subsystem.

BSOD-Error-0xc000021a-Windows-10

This error occurs when a user-mode subsystem such as WinLogon or the CSRSS (Client Server Run-Time Subsystem) has been fatally compromised and security can no longer be guaranteed. The operating system then switches to kernel mode. Microsoft Windows cannot run without WinLogon or CSRSS. This is one of the few cases where a service failure in user mode can cause the system to shut down.

Incorrect system files can also lead to this error. This can happen if you have recovered your hard disk from a backup. Some backup programs may skip restoring system files they consider to be in use.

0xC000021A error usually appears on a Microsoft Windows 10 machine after upgrading from a previous version of Microsoft Windows or after performing a repair installation. When you get the blue screen of death, the one below will appear on your screen.

Now, before we panic, let’s look at some ways to correct this error.

Repair corrupted files

I still want to start fixing corrupted files on your system because I’ve solved a lot of systems that don’t boot in my time. I also like to do it first, because it means we’re not making any changes to the system. To repair corrupted files, proceed as follows.

– Insert your Windows 10 DVD into your system and start the DVD. (If your system does not have a DVD drive, you can download a Windows 10 ISO from the Microsoft website and create a USB boot drive.

On the first screen, click on “Troubleshooting”.
Then click on “Advanced Options”.
Then click on “Prompt”.

A black window should appear, in the chkdsk window type C : /f /r, this will launch a chkdsk on your system that will correct /f = disk error, and /r will find and recover the bad sectors. When you receive a y/n prompt, type y and press Enter. Now restart your computer and hope it starts correctly.
