After Sleeping Dogs crashed, chrome, firefox, internet explorer, flux, and steam don't properly render their UI or crash/or are unusable.
Utorrent renders and is totally usable, aero didn't crash when the game crashes which is usually the case when a game crashes.
I've tried logging off and logging back on, which doesn't work, restart does fix the problem. I'd like to know how I could narrow down the process or service which was affected by the game crashing to see if I can manually restart it instead of restarting my computer.
I'm running NV 9800GTX and all up to date drivers, chipset, graphics everything is up to date.
