Minesweeper game not responding
I am running Vista Ultimate. When playing Minesweeper in the Advanced Mode
the game typically stops responding after approximately 70% of the mines have
been detected. Message is that Minesweeper executable is not responding. Is
there a fix?

RE: Minesweeper game not responding
I'm running home premium with exactly the same problem. I also have problems
with IE7 which the help section tells me is something to do with add ons but
doesn't know which one. Maybe they are connected. But I hope someone finds
out soon cos it's driving me mad.

I have the same problem. So far I've found one solution: I copied
Minesweeper from Windows XP (System32/winmine.exe). It's less fancy, but
at least working!
