Hi, I have an Acer Aspire 1350 with a 20G hard disk and an AMD Athlon processor XP-M running at 1.7 Mhz. The memory has been increased by 512M from the original 256M.
I'm having a small problem with my Explorer.exe. Most of the time the computer works okay although it is loaded with many applications. But sometimes - quite a few times in fact - it seems to freeze my working on the computer. The mouse is rendered useless and when I click on an application it does not start at all. I have discovered that clicking on the Task Manager works, and so I delete the explorer.exe process in it and then rerun it from the same Manager. This clears the screen and when everything comes back I can take over again and the applications open up normally. As you may understand this is a small problem because doing this operation is faster then having to shut down and restart the computer every time. But I would like to know why this is happening? Is it becuse I have too many applications, or is it a question of conflicts which has to be resolved? Is it possible to solve this problem? Any ideas?
