My OS is windows 7 prof 64 bit and I have a Dell Vostro 220. On the taskbar at the bottom of the screen, I have a couple of programs pinned to it, for convenience as these are the programs that I always switch to and back. My IE9 was crashing so often, my pc tech neighbor had a look at my screen, and commented that this could be one of the reasons, as those programs pinned to the taskbar are actually running.
Can someone please confirm whether this is true. When I was on the phone with MS support and I asked the same question, he said NO, because they are just pinned.
My question is what programs are active and running, and how would I know what is running without opening the task bar. Or must I open the task bar to do this. Because I also have McAfee. Thank u
