RE: windows resume loader?? What is it and what do i do?
The resume loader is what is used when returning from hibernation.
When the system boots up it checks whether the machine was hibernated or
If it was hibernated, winresume.exe loads and attempts to mount the
Hiberfil.sys is what was stored in memory at the time the machine was
When WinResume attempts to load the hiberfil.sys, it fails( the
hiberfil.sys file could be corrupted)
So it's asking if you want to delete this hiberfil.sys and boot normally,
not to attempt to resume from hibernation.
This would lose any active data that was stored in this file and not stored
For example an application that was open that had data in it that was not
saved anywhere else on the machine when the machine was hibernated.
