    I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit. Scrapebox was running and I was about half-way done commenting on a list of 170k blogs, when explorer.exe crashed. I chose the "Restart explorer.exe" option that came up in a dialog. Now, because I had scrapebox minimized, I cannot find out how to bring up the Scrapebox UI again. I do not want to lose my ~50k successful blog comments because I have to go through the full list again. Is there any way I can find the file that has all of the urls and details the "posted" and "failed" ones, or is there a way to bring up the Scrapebox UI again without ending the scrapebox.exe process and restarting?

    mmmm it usually go to the hidden icons, in the right corner of your PC, where MSN usually minimizes.

    Once explorer is running once more, then go into Task Manager and find the Task and use Switch To on the bottom.

    Hope that helps

    Normally in XP I do like this and it works but I don't know is it work for 7

    Ctrl+Alt+Del > Applications Tab > New Task > Write explorer.exe > Run

    Just for the future... Do yourself a BIG favor and replace windows default task manager with procexplorer from sysinternals.com ;-) For those who don't know what this is and wonder if this company is legit, let me just add it was SO good and their coders so knowledgeable that Microsoft bought it a few years ago... All their utilities are KILLER. 2c.

    also using crashdump logging save your work any crashing- it saves posted, posted+failed, all list to scrapebox directory. when crashing after restart scrapebox import all list to harvester then again import url menu select the url lists to compare then when you select posted or posted+failed url file this urls removed from main list then continue your work

    for crashdump logging install crashdump addon in there explains about addon read them after that in options menu enable crashdump logging
