This is Microsoft's File Manager for goodness sakes! And that's coming from a long time Linux user and first-time Windows user. :D

Not a necessary program. Takes a lot of memory, so if you need the extra, go ahead and end the process. Easily restored through the task manager when you need it again.

[DO NOT BLOCK/END] you will see only your wallpaper and opened programs. IF BLOCKED ctrl+alt+del - task manager - new task - browse "C:\Program Files\Glary Utilities\procmgr.exe" edit -blocklist - remove explorer.exe from the list. if all you did was end it. just like every other post here says, just new task then explorer.exe or reboot. system restore is unnecessary

i am not very pc literate but i sure would like to be. do i have too many processes running as shown by this application? i do not know which ones should or should not be running or what they are but i sure hope to one of these days. my goal is a fast response system that doesnt keep me hanging wondering why it is taking so long! i think your utilities are the best and even better than any that have a high price tag. thank you. kmay@msn.com

TO: the grumpygeezer: Next time press Ctrl-Alt-Del, and get the Task Manager up and running. then go to "File" and click the RUN command, then just type "Explorer" (no quotes) and it will re-start.

If you don't have enough RAM to run games or applications you can disable explorer.exe before you had to copy the file directory of your game in task manager.

It may not be a security risk but for the unsuspecting or newbe it is very dangerous. When I shut it down with the Task Manager everything I tried to turn it back on failed. I have NO ICONS on my desktop so there was nothing to click on and I was unable to access the Task Manager. Through a back door I finally was able to access SYSTEM RESTORE and was able to restore everything back to normal.
