Went an app hangs up and I get a "No Response," Windows 7 brings up a box to "Fix the problem." It goes thru a lot a business of "Solving the Problem," but never does and the app freezes up. I can minimize it, but I can't just it to CLOSE! Even Task manager won't close it. I want to get rid of this "Feature" which is a plain ole bug to me.

Maybe Windows 8?

All applications?

If this happens to all applications then there's something seriously wrong indeed and shutting off that Windows Troubleshooting window won't cure that.

But if it is just on or two applications, then wouldn't it be better to troubleshoot those instead? Not knowing which applications hang means no specific advice can be given, but if I ever have an app that continuously fails I tend to cut my losses uninstall that app and find something else.

Can you tell us more about these failing applications?
