Windows 7 explorer becomes unresponsive
Sometimes my computer glitches and I am not able to click on anything that has to do with the windows explorer process (desktop icons, taskbar programs, etc.) I have tried ending the explorer.exe process, but i cant start it back up again because starting explorer.exe opens an explorer window (my computer, my docs, etc.). The only way to fix this is by restarting. Does anyone know how to prevent this? The laptop I'm on is a Dell XPS L501X (i5 460M, 4GB ram (2x 2GB) NVIDIA GeForce GT 425M (1GB)) I am running Windows 7 home premium 64-bit
EDIT: This problem got weirder...Now it happens less frequently, but the problem goes away if I open Revo Uninstaller (maybe because the UAC message refreshes the explorer process?). Does anyone know if that is the reason?
