How to Take Effect After Installation Without Restarting Windows XP/Vista?
  

hey guys i want to know how to make new program to become effective and running properly without restarting Windows XP/Vista ?
Restarting computer is irritating and frustrating especially when you are in the middle of doing your work and have lot of applications currently running simultaneously. You may need to stop your work, save and close all documents and applications before restarting the PC.
Plaese help me on this

Don?t worry, my friend now there is a way to make the program effective even without the need to restart computer after the installation.

You can achieve this by restarting Explorer instead of restarting whole windows. To restart Explorer, you can follow the traditional way by going to task manager, then go to Processes tab and sort applications by clicking on Image Name column. Look for explorer.exe and kill all of them by clicking End Process button. Alternatively, to make the steps simple, copy below commands as below into notepad and save it as KillExplorer.bat

@echo off
taskkill /f /IM explorer.exe
explorer.exe


Execute KillExplorer.bat batch file will kill all the running explorer.exe in Windows within few seconds. Hope this tips will keep your current tasks running without being interrupted by unnecessary system restart.

if you kill explorer, it will close any opened folders, etc.
