How to avoid losing your work in case a program stops responding


Sometimes, while doing some specific work on your PC or browsing the internet, the program you're using suddenly stops responding without any apparent reason. If you hadn't been saving your work regularly, you'll most likely lose it when Windows prompts you to close the program.

There's however a solution that could help you avoid such frustration. Here are the steps to follow in case a program stops responding :

1. Once you encounter such a problem, don't close the program you're using.

2. Open the Task Manager by pressing Ctrl + Alt + Delete.

3. In the "Processes" tab, find "explorer.exe", choose it and click "End Process" on the bottom right.

4. Click "Yes" (Everything you see in the background will disappear but don't panic, it will come back).

5. Click "File" on the top left.

4. Choose "New Task (Run...)"

5. Write "explorer.exe" in the box.

And everything comes back! You can now resume your work...

Hang up internet explorer not responding


If you use Internet Explorer you may experience issues where the browser freezes, hangs up and stops responding.


Although many things can cause the browser to stop responding, if the problem persists there are a few troubleshooting techniques that you can use to fix the problem.


Troubleshooting Internet Explorer may require you to perform a few steps or several, depending on the cause of the problem.

Click "Start," choose "All Programs" and click on the "Windows Update" option.

A new window will appear.


Click the "Check for updates" link on the left side of the window.

Windows will connect to the internet and search for updates for your system.


Click the "Install updates" button on the right side of the window.

Windows will automatically download and install any updates it finds.


Restart your computer, if prompted.


Delete Temporary Internet Files


Click "Start" and select "Control Panel."


Click the "Network and Internet" selection then click on "Internet Options."

The Internet Properties dialog box will appear.


Click the "Delete" button beneath the "Browsing history" section.

A new window will appear.


Place a check-mark next to "Temporary Internet files" and click "Delete."

Allow the computer to delete the temporary internet files then close the Internet Properties dialog box.


Remove Problematic Add Ons


Click "Start" and enter "Internet Explorer" into the Windows search bar.


Click on "Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)" when it appears in the list.

Internet Explorer will launch with no add-ons running.


Click "Tools" on the right side of the browser and select "Manage Add ons."

A pop up window will appear.


Click on "Toolbars and Extensions" beneath the "Add on Types" section on the left side of the window.

A list of add ons will appear on the right side of the window.


Scroll through the list of installed add-ons and locate third party add ons that you've recently installed.

Note that you can look at the "File date" for a date of when you installed the add on.

Look for add ons that you installed at approximately the same time you began experiencing issues with Internet Explorer not responding.


Click on any suspected problematic add-ons and click the "Disable" button at the bottom of the window. Close "Internet Explorer (No Add ons)" and restart the browser normally.


Verify that disabling the add-on fixes the problem.

If not, repeat this section and disable another recently installed add on until you fix the problem.


Hope this helps.

The internet explorer icon is not responding (no matter how many times i clik)?


It is possible that the shortcut icon is broken. Click start and then click Internent Explorer apposed to clicking it on your desktop.

I would also recommend installing the latest available Internet Explorer for your computer.
Click here to download Windows Internet Explorer 8.( For Microsoft Windows XP or Vista.)
Click here to download Windows Internet Explorer 9.( For Microsoft Windows Vista or 7.)

Be sure to select your version of Microsoft Windows under the correct language. Click the download button to proceed.

Take care!

Internet explorer stops working


Microsoft has suggested people uninstall SP1 for Vista for the time being until they resolve some problems.

You should find this as an uninstallable program in Control Panel Add Remove, scroll down until you see the entry.

If you don't contact me with the comment box below and we'll try the alternative method.

Thanks for responding to my questions. You can't imagine how many people just don't and give up before we've had a chance to work with you to solve and fix your problem.

Regards,
