How Windows 7 Deals With Crashed Applications
December 26th, 2008

Windows 7 offers an interesting new option when a software program becomes unresponsive. Windows 7 offers to try to cancel the non-responsive command of a process instead of just killing the process or offering to restart the application.

The user can continue working with the application if the cancellation of the non-responsive command is successful. This essentially means that the chance of loosing data is slim to none one a successful cancellation.

The success rate of this new method is not known currently but it did work quite well during tests. This is definitely the better - and safer - option than to simply kill the application or restart it. Both methods that have been used in previous Windows versions usually meant that some data would be lost in the process.

That is handy.....

skype seems to be an offender for me at the minute..... i cannot keep it running in 6936 now, it just whites out after 20 secs, but it has allowed me to continue my call when it fails, even though i cant access the app........


there is a real need for this with the pre-beta's, i predict very few crashes with the finished product, if these builds are anything to go buy!!

That is a known problem with Skype. You have to use the new Beta version, which runs fine on Windows 7.
