I always hear windows crashes/freezes too often. I always thought it was crazy talk though since I knew the following.

If it ever crashes just go ahead and open up the task manager and then go to the Processes tab find explorer.exe and end it, and then go back to the task manager, and in the Menu hit File, New Task (Run...), and then in the box it brings up type explorer.exe

Hope that helps someone, that's saved me from wasting my time, with restarting, waiting it out and other nonsense.

Yes that does actually work. I have required it a few times.

You may find that you have to go to the Processes tab in Task Manager and remove any instances of explorer.exe there before this will work, but work it usually does. Very handy, and quicker than a reboot.

There are very many people around the world who weren't brought up with computers at home and school. Now they are learning to use their own PCs and this is where BleepingComputer comes into its own.

Keep up the good work. :thumbsup:
