    I've been using this Windows Server 2012 R2 Vm for work for over a year, and today, all of a sudden when I try to start it, I get a pop up saying: "The virtual machine was restarted. The virtual machine processor was reset by the operating system." over and over. I have no idea what happened, the last thing I remember was deleting a snapshot a couple of days ago to free up some space and I haven't used the VM since.
    Has anyone ever encountered a problem like this??
