Vista not recovering from crashes

Posted: 06-26-2006, 09:19 PM
I've noticed that Vista doesn't recovers from crashes as XP does. I've read
that Vista should recover better and has some features that makes it more
reliable but doesn't seems to be this way.

I know is still a beta and I don't worry when something crashes. But I've
had to push my case reset button more times that I expected. When an
application gets hanged the full system halts and I can't presh Ctrl-Alt-Del
to open tast manager and close the application not responding. The only
option is to do a hard reset.

Regards,
Angel.

I've noticed that Vista doesn't recover from crashes as expected. In XP when
an application crashes it closes or I can press Ctrl-Alt-Del to open task
manager and close the not responding application.

On Vista when an application stops responding the hole systems halts and
don't responds. I've had to pres the case reset button many times.

Angel.

Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I have had the new Crash
recovery/helpfull suggestion bit jump in a couple of times...but I just had
a hard crash in Oblivion and the ctrl-alt-del took me to the Aurora page
that offers task manager/log off/switch user/etc. I was actually surprised
it did not give me the option to Shut Down or Restart.
When I went into Task Manager it showed that Oblivion was not
responding...but neither was Task Manager.

I thought that Vista manages crashes better than XP. But not by now...

Angel,

You need to be more specific. What programs are you using and computer
specs. I have had no problems other than Movie Maker not responding, then
closing down. I initially had constant lockups with Computer Associates
antivirus. When I dumped it all of my problems disappeared.

Regards
Jonty

I have locked up 3 times in IE. No certain pages. I had to reset also. No
Taskman.

I've not been specific becouse I was not asking for any solution. It was
just a comment.

On XP when an application crashes (rarelly as it's very stable for me) it
just closes and the system keeps running flawlessly. On Vista everytime a
program is not reponding (often, I suppose it's normal in a beta) the whole
system gets hanged and I have to do a hard reset to recover loosing all the
data on other open applications.
