Extract the program, make a shortcut and copy the shortcut to

START MENU- PROGRAMS - STARTUP
Now every time you start the computer process explorer will start up and you can kill any processes you need

also you can disable programs from startup by

start -> run -> msconfig -> startup tab

Laptop hangs on logging off screen


try closing IE manually by opening task manager. right click on the taskbar> start task manager>processes>right click iexplorer.exe>end process. i would suggest you switch to chrome if the problem persists. usually however when a system hangs at logoff or shutdown it's because it has too many programs running. you should install an app that can help you manage which apps start with windows. i recommend CCleaner to do general pc cleanup as well.. when you have it running go to tools>startup to manage all those apps that bog down your computer.

Energy management


Start your computer in SAFE MODE by pressing F8 as it's booting up and when you see the Options menu, select the 'Safe Mode with Networking' option. Do some research and see if there are any updates for that software on Lenovo's website. You might not even need that software and might be able to remove it while you're in Safe Mode.

Laptop hanging off


If your laptop is hanging while you are working, press this combination keys:
Ctrl Alt Del.
If you are using windows XP, it should automatically take you to task manager.
But if you are using windows vista or windows 7, it would show you options, of which you are to select 'task manager'.
End the tasks the are not responding by right clickin it and selecting 'end task'.
If that task still refuses to end, still in the task master pane, go to 'processes'.
Select the processs running the nonresponsive task. Eg, if internet explorer is the non responsive task, the process would be 'explorer.exe'.
End that process.

If it stil doesnt work, then select 'end all processes', and restart the system.
Hope this was helpful?
Success.

Displays sys error session manager initialization terminated unexpectedly status of 0xc00026c (0x00000000 0x00000000)


smss.exe is the process that manages sessions in Windows Computer. This is the session manager subsystem, which is responsible for starting the user session. This process is initiated by the main system thread and is responsible for various activities, including launching the Winlogon and Win32 (Csrss.exe) processes, and setting system variables. After it has launched these processes, it waits for either Winlogon or Csrss to end. If this happens normally, the system shuts down; if it happens unexpectedly, smss.exe causes the system to stop responding (hang).

In this case, I suggest that you start the "smss.exe" process manually from the Task Manager. You can press the "Ctrl+Shift+Esc" together to display the Task Manger window. Then, click on the Applications tab then the "new task" tab located at the bottom. In the New task dialog box, please type "smss.exe" and click OK.

However, you can also perform System Restore to restore the Windows System files to the time when it operated normally. Performing System restore will not delete any saved data however, all the installed programs after the selected restored point will be unistalled and require to reinstall them.

Froze from start


Something might be freezing explorer.exe on startup.

Try:

go to Task Manger (ctrl+alt+delete)
go to the processes tab
find explorer.exe and click it then click end process
and then yes to the dialogue that comes up.
now go to file (still in task manager)
and type in explorer.exe

if it windows says cannot find file or whatever then hit browse and then find your way to C:\WINDOWS\ then find explorer.exe.

Compaq n600c hang problem plz slove my problem


Please give more information Like --
After how much time it hangs?
what OS u r using?

in general answer --
open task manager (pressing CTRL,ALT, DEL keys) this will bring up Windows Task Manger, click on Application, highlight any task that is Not Responding and click on End Task. 

Also, to make your CPU boot up faster, I would
click on Start
click on Run
type msconfig.exe (this will open System Configuration Utility box)
click on the Start Up Tab
(you will see several boxes checked under Startup Item). And look for programs that you don't want to launch every single time you log on. (such as Realpayer, yahooMessegner, realsched, etc). 
Uncheck the boxes and this will require a reboot. Your computer will bootup a lot faster. These programs you can always open when you want. You can always tell if you have a lot of programs that startup when you turn on your cpu and in the righthand corner, where the time time is at, you see a lot of icons. 

Also if you can always open up task manager again, click on Processes, find explorer.exe and kill that process, this closes everything on your screen. dont worry... 
then in task manager 
click on FIle
New Task Run
and type explorer.exe and click OK
and you will see all your icons pop back up on the screen.

Post reply....
Thanks

Computer will not shut down


I have not switched to Vista, but I would try starting the Task Manager (right click on the task bar and select task manager). Then I would select the Processes tab and start killing processes to see if you can track down which one is causing your problem. Assuming you can narrow this problem down to a single process you'll at least have a fighting chance at solving fixing this.

Good luck.
