dwm.exe causing problems?
“Desktop Window Manager has stopped working and will be closed.”
Get that much? Usually it is because of a graphics card driver meltdown. In cases like mine at work, I like to disable DWM when possible. Users do not “need” the fancy aero interface. I want their machines to run faster and happier without the DWM hog.
Hit the magic windows button (start)
In the start search window type in Services and hit enter
When the services window comes up, scrolll down or type des to have it automagically take you to:
Desktop Window Manager Session Manager
Double click that
In the dropdown for startup type, change it to disabled.
Hit apply then ok.
Reboot. look at your ram and proc utilization now. Happy huh?
IF you couldn’t run services.msc, you may need permission from a network admin. Or you can right click on it and hit run as administrator if you are the admin. 🙂
