in reply to Win32 / Not responding

I believe you are using WindowsXp.

That's an issue that started with Xp, and I believe it was done to give you control over the application that seems to be not-responding (by replacing the titlebar so that the close button is accessible, and it tags the application "Not Responding")

It happens to a lot of apps, and I doubt it can be changed. try opening a 100Mb file in photoshop, it will do the same.

He who asks will be a fool for five minutes, but he who doesn't ask will remain a fool for life.

    Chady, this didn't start with WinXP. It's been an issue with any Win32 since NT. You can see my first post, Application Not Responding, as another example and see one solution.

    PerlingTheUk, did you bother to try a search on Not Responding before you posted this question? You'll find several threads on this exact issue. Next time, try using search first to see if your question has already been asked & answered.
