When a program frequently hangs and there is absolutely no fix available you could use a batch script to restart the process e.g. explorer.exe
I’m using a lot of scripts on my PC and it can happen that I have to restart the explorer in order to make some of the work again. Debugging takes a lot of time, so a temporary solution could be a batch script to restart the explorer in Windows 7/8. Step
Here’s what it would look like. Put this in a text file and save it as a file with the extension .bat
taskkill /f /im explorer.exe
You can replace explorer.exe with your own processes/tasks. As you can see only two lines are needed. You can then pin this batch to your taskbar and run it quickly whenever it is needed.
