How To Fix Windows Explorer has stopped working

How To Fix Windows Explorer has stopped working

Windows Explorer is not responding, this bug is common in every computer. There is always a situation where we see this error. I was feeling bored so I thought of making a post on this so users can get a solution. The solution [present here] doesn't require reboot or shutdown. You can follow this without any reboot, means your work will be safe, I can guaranty that.
The Windows Explroer is not responding bug is the failer of explorer.exe process. This happens when the processor is quite old (like mine) or when you put too much work on the computer. When it cannot handle the task, it crashes and displays the error. Now let's see the screen shot of this common bug we see in our computer:

Credits goes to me for capturing the ScreenShot.

When this kind of error appears, click on Close the program because it can take much time to respond back again. I always select Close the program because I know it will take much time. However, it depends upon you. If you're copying/moving/browsing any file or folder then please click on Wait for the program to respond else it will be closed and your work will be unfinished!

What you need to download fix this bug

  • Nothing, but a computer with mouse and keyboard.
What you need to know
  • The solution will work on Microsoft Windows XP, Microsoft Windows Vista, Microsoft Windows 7, Microsoft Windows 8, Microsoft Windows 8.1 and on any variant.
