Windows 7 offers an interesting new option when a software program becomes unresponsive. Windows 7 offers to try to cancel the non-responsive command of a process instead of just killing the process or offering to restart the application.

The user can continue working with the application if the cancellation of the non-responsive command is successful. This essentially means that the chance of loosing data is slim to none one a successful cancellation.

The success rate of this new method is not known currently but it did work quite well during tests. This is definitely the better - and safer - option than to simply kill the application or restart it. Both methods that have been used in previous Windows versions usually meant that some data would be lost in the process.

That could prove to be useful, but it would probably not help with gaming as much as normal apps, but it will certainly reduce data loss

Very unfortunate is that this feature is not for Windows Explorer. It crashed a few times here and i only got the options to close the program or restart it. I'm running the 7000 build.

Is the option explicitly defined?

Consider this pseudo-code

Code:
Define int DriveToWhipe=0;
MFC.Get-User-Input-For-USB-Disk-To-Whipe(); <--Crashes & Is Skipped
WhipDisk(DriveToWhipe);

I wonder if you can induce a crash in Windows genuine check apparatus :D

Most of the times it only occured when i clicked on the Windows Explorer icon, or when i closed something, but now the build runs very smooth on my system. haven't had any crashes any more so i'm glad.
