NIS.exe stopped working
I saw this error message in the Reliability Monitor:
"NIS.exe stopped working"
Faulting application name: NIS.exe, version: 18.104.22.168, time stamp: 0x5202e8a2
Faulting module name: KERNEL32.DLL_unloaded, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x51fb1115

The time stamp on the message shows it ocurred during the last Windows updates.
I never noticed any problem as the Windows updates required a restart, which I guess fixed the problem.
Just a little concerned that a Windows update could stop NIS.exe working.
