How to Restart explorer.exe Remotely




If your remote desktop session is still active, 
CTRL + ALT + END 
should have the same effect as a CTRL + ALT + DEL on the remote system. That might get you the Task Manager up, in which case you can kill/restart explorer.exe as required.

  3. If you want to keep the user logged in, can you connect to the console session using mstsc /admin (or mstsc /console if you're using XP/2003) and then do a CTRL+ALT+END from there?

    1. If the explorer.exe is not killed yet, kill it in the task manager.

      Hit windows+R for the run dialog, then enter explorer.exe, and hit ok. The explorer.exe should be started again, and you be good to go (on). Alternatively, to start the process, you can use the taskmanagers New Task… button from the Applications tab, which opens a run dialog as well (just renamed).
