Ending Explorer.exe

Specs: Windows Vista, $GB
I am recovering an old hard drive using Recuva, but explorer.exe has crashed on my computer. Looking at task manager, explorer is using about 90% of CPU and 1GB ram. Due to this, the time remaining to recover my disk on Recuva has remained on 4 days for some time already (2 days). If I were to end explorer.exe and run it again, would this cancel the recovery, or would it contine. Bear in mind it has already recovered alot of info, if it were to be cancelled it would take a few days to get back to the level it is at now. Thanks

ending explorer will not commit any harm to the computer.
but have the program open ready before you end the process.
then push alt+tab and your program should still be there but you
wont see it at first because you just killed the interface.

then after using recover thing, select new task in taskmanager
and type in "explorer.exe" and the interface will come back.
