Automatically close Not responding programs:-

Some time programs become non-responsive. When we see in task manager their Status will be Not Responding instead of Running. Than we had to Manually end the program by clicking on the End Task Tab in the task manager.

The Program became ‘Not Responding’ due to many reasons. May be there is a programming error and the application fall in a never ending loop. It may be due to malfunctioning of any hardware or The application is still performing the previous function and you are trying to perform next function and some times System Tends to hang.

We can set the windows to end them automatically as they become ‘Not Responding’. so here is the trick for it.

Open Registry by going to Start then Run and Enter regedit.
than Navigate to

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\ Desktop

In Right side panel look for ‘AutoEndTasks’ and Modify its value to 1.

You can also set time for waiting before end the application if an
application becomes Not Responding.

For this setting on the same panel find the ‘WaitToKillAppTimeout’ key and change its value to the time after which you want to kill a not responding application.(Time here is in Milliseconds)

That’s It..
