End Explorer.exe properly? - Mgamerz - 03-02-2011 02:18 AM
I was reading up somewhere online that that there is a way to properly exit explorer.exe. When you do it, especially on windows 7 (just killing explorer processor), it seems to make duplicate of many processes. Perhaps forcing a logout/login or using the proper method of closing and restarting explorer would work better (so processes end and not make duplicates).
:::After reading it a bit, it doesn't look like you can do it automatically. If you could give an option to update/install without it automatically killing it (making me reboot/logout/in), I could just do this:

The installer used to just request a reboot when it was done. Restarting explorer is just much faster. Dropbox does this and it seems to do it quite well. I really wish I knew exactly how they did it. At one point I did have a popup that would ask if you wanted to restart explorer or just reboot, but it's really hard to word for the non-technical. Maybe I could make it an option where you choose the options you want to install? I could have it checked by default but you could turn it off if you wanted to?
