Windows Explorer sucks less today (for me)
Man, the latest version of Autoruns (from July) kicks the llama's ass. OMG a lot of things are running in my startup. Anyway, for the last three weeks on my home system, explorer.exe started disappearing. Not crashing in that spectacular way. Not crashing in that Dr. Watson way, no, no. You've seen this...when Explorer is there...then it's not. Poof. And it was happening every 10 minutes or so. All. Day. Long.
Needless to say it was driving me nuts. So, I started up Autoruns and removed EVERYTHING from the Internet Explorer tab as something in my gut was telling me it was inproc to IE and not a shell extension for Explorer. Anyway, it's surprising how stable Explorer is when there's no craplets running in its memory space. :)
Sigh. You know, I'm just not that interested in trying to figure out which of them it was yet. One day. For now, I'm craplet-less.
