3D Printing tidbit 4 - Closing RepG from the Task Manager

If ReplicatorG locks up your windows machine (which happens more often on lower spec machines) and you can't get it to close do the following:
  1. Press Ctrl+Shift+Esc to bring up the Task Manager
  2. Go to the Process tab.
  3. Find "JavaW" (Not ReplicatorG) and click on it.
  4. Press the "End Process" button.


  1. If you're running Windows XP Pro or any version of Vista or 7, you can type this in your start menu searchbar to accomplish the same thing. I find it a bit faster:
    taskkill /f /im javaw.exe

    1. Whups! Forgot to mention, for XP pro you need search 4.0, then you type an equals sign (=) before the text in the searchbar on your taskbar.

    2. Excellent point.

      The point of this post was really step 3. Many people don't know that it's JavaW you want to close, not replicatorG. (I discovered this through minecraft, by the way.
