Error when using [Ctrl] + [Alt] + [Delete] to shut down the computer

Exact Symptoms: If you press [Ctrl] + [Alt] + [Delete] twice on a USB keyboard in Windows, you may receive the following error message on a blue screen:
“A fatal exception 06 has occurred at xxxx:xxxxxxxx. The current application will be terminated.”

Cause: Restarting Windows by pressing [Ctrl] + [Alt] + [Delete] twice is not recommended. This method causes Windows to suspend most processes and should be used only when the normal shutdown process is not possible.

Solution: Use the Shut Down command on the Start menu to restart your computer.
