I'm using Datacenter Edition.

My computer just became unresponsive for ages so i reset it on the tower.

When windows loads up computer asks "why was computer shutdown?"

I chose "it was unresponsive" - The default was "Other" is it ok to have changed it mistakingly coz "I" shut it down not the computer - does the computer apply/change etc anything depending on those answers?

Please help

Hi Serotonin_X_Infinite,

Nope, nothing will change depending on your answers, it's only for logging purposes, you can safely disable that function:
Start > Run > gpedit.msc > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Display Shutdown Event Tracker > disable > Close gpedit.msc
