Recover From Locked Up Application in Windows 7

In older versions of Windows there was nothing you could do about a Locked Up Application execpt kill the process. This has changed in windows 7. A feature in windows 7 can explain the problem and may get the application working again.

When a program locks up, click Start, type RESMON and click the RESMON.EXE link to launch the Resource Monitor.
Click the CPU pain and find your stuck/frozen program.

Windows Resource Monitor 1

(It should be highlighted in red), right-click it and select Analyze Wait Chain.

Windows Resource Monitor 2

If you see at least two processes in the list, then the lowest, at the end of the tree, is the one holding up your program. If it's not a vital Windows component, or anything else critical, then save any work in other open applications, check the box next to this process, click End Process, and your locked-up program will often spring back to life.
