Windows 7: Windows Explorer stop responding


Windows 7: Windows Explorer stop responding




Limiting the problems caused by blockage of the Windows Explorer


A common problem is that Windows Explorer freezes. This causes the taskbar and the desktop will also be blocked.
  • In Windows 7, these three elements are handled through the same process. One solution is to isolate the desktop and taskbar in another separate process so that these elements continue to function well the browser to crash. To do this:
  • We click Start> Run, type regedit
  • We turn to the key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer
  • In the right pane, if the value of DesktopProcess is not 1, we give you right click and select "Edit", then put 1 in the Value Data field
  • If DesktopProcess not appear, we must create it: right click on the right pane and select "New> Dword value (32 bits), then we put DesktopProcess name.
  • Reboot the PC
  • This modification will slightly increase the footprint of RAM.
    • Note: Press Esc key repeatedly Explorer can unlock.
