Applications not responding on Microsoft® Windows® 7
It can be troublesome if some useful applications stop responding on Microsoft Windows 7. Applications can hang or stop responding due to a number of reasons. It may be possible that the application you are trying to run on the system may not be compatible with it. If your application hangs or freezes, it may lead to loss of critical data for you. It may hang when you open some document on the application or when you connect it with a printer. Freezing of the application installed on your system may happen due to availability of less amount of RAM memory. Driver and software issues may also cause freezing of the application.
Following points may give users an idea about the issues that lead to freezing or not responding status of applications on Microsoft Windows 7 and tips to fix the issues:
- Registry errors
- Extensive utilization of system resources
- Removal of add-ons
The errors on the registry of your system may also cause freezing of applications on Microsoft Windows 7. The frequent installing and uninstalling of programs on your system can also result in errors on the windows registry. The information about each and every application on the system is stored on the windows registry. Hence, any error on it may cause the applications to hang. You need to use registry cleaner software to remove errors from the registry on your system.
Extensive utilization of system resources
The minimum amount of memory required by a 32-bit operating system is 1GB and for a 64-bit operating system it is 2GB. The processors need to have a speed of 1GHz or greater. For the installation of Microsoft Word application and for its smooth running, the system needs to have enough memory. Many programs may run on the background when you operate the Microsoft Word 2007 application. The programs running on the background may take up large amount of system resources, which results in the freezing of Microsoft Windows 7 application.
Applications may also hang due to presence of certain add-ons in the system. The add-ons slow down your application and it may also result in lack of response from the application. Thus, when it is found to be causing problems on the system, you need to disable unnecessary add-ons.
