  1. What does "Not responding" imply?


    I hope this is not too much a bonehead question, but what does it really mean when Windows flags a program as "Not responding"? Has Windows performed an action that should interrupt the program's execution but the program has not given control back to Windows - like a tight loop? (I assume in a single threaded environment, Windows itself would be dead in that case.)

    Or does it imply that the program is waiting on an event that cannot happen - e.g. two threads in a deadlock?

    Or does it imply something I haven't thought of?

    :)

    Windows Updated(16299.309).KB4088776 Restart is required to complete.


    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond What does "Not responding" imply? :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.
