I used to have a file called NotesMedic for 6.0 that would allow you to launch lotus notes after an abnormal session close without rebooting. We now have version 7 and this no longer repairs the issue. Is there a resource to allow this same recovery process??

You can try Killnotes.exe, but I always use task manager. Task Manager => Processes => High light “nlnotes.exe”=> End process.

Another great option is to close all other programs (if it is not too onerous to do so) and do a logoff/logon without a full restart. This will force all processes running under your Windows profile to shut down, including hung Notes processes. This has a great advantage: If Notes hasn’t actually crashed but is hung up, Windows should interrupt it and allow you to save work. This has been especially helpful in my experience. Using this technique has very beneficially since I have started using it and works with other Windows processes that like to hang in MS Excel and MS Access. I have never had it help with MS Outlook, however. When that wants to crash it just goes away with no chance for data recovery.

    You really shouldn't use Notes Medic or killnotes.exe anymore. There is a built in switch for nsd.exe that will kill all tasks off and allow you to re-launch notes without a restart. It must be run from the program directory where your notes.ini is located. Example: c:\program files\lotus\notes\nsd.exe -kill This is preferred as it's now part of the product instead of being a third party tool.

    You do not need to log off or restart or anything. Simply open your Task Manager (Ctrl + Shift + Esc) Click on the Processes tab Find and End the process called 'ntaskldr.exe' Start Lotus Notes normally.
