Windows Vista showing ‘not responding ‘message


Hello Mary Ann,

A non-responsive computer or a message is caused by files which are  too much to process by Random Access Memory and  a Processor. This occurs when you are copying and pasting large files in a document and or in a software application like Microsoft Office.

When this occurs, you need to have a work Background Worker, to do the job for you instead of copying directly using the shortcut command CTRL + C. A supported hot fix is available for download in Microsoft website.

I have here link and article numbers that will help give us possible solutions to this issue

Hope this will give you insight, as why this non-responsive is happening. Press CTRL + ALT + Del to stop this non-responsive program and re-group yourself and do it again.
