Yes, but we are talking about Explorer,ie the part of windows used to display the desktop and the folders etc.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I was advised to turn off any kind of display effects such as aero and animations,something i'm still playing with, but until it happens again its hard to say if its cured it ornot. Very hard to find such odball weirdnesses.
You used to get something similar in Outlook express on XP where email contents did not load and trying to start a new emal said it had not loaded and memory was short, closing OE and reopening fixed it. Interestingly the new version of OE that can be run on 7and later has retained this problem, so its obviously the program itself. However it never crashes under other screenreaders, so often the bizzarre interactions between access software and the runing programs are very hard to pin down.
That is the way I see the explorer crash as well. Its a great pity that nvda cannot realise its lost the software its reading and tell you that explorer has died rather than just going into sulk mode till explorer reboots, which it will only do when you actiion the screen about it which nvda won't read as its frozen in stack.
