    Application not closing

    Starting about 6 months ago, when I exit an application it doesn't close completely.
    When I look at task manager, it shows a process still running.
    Because of this, I can't run updates for certian applications.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    thanks

    Is this ALL applications, or just a few? You can stop them from Task Manager, can you not, then they should update.

    It happens with only some applications.
    For those applications, I have to run the updates thru the application itself.
    Thus the application has to close as part of the update process.

    Do the issues persist after you update the problematic apps?

    Cool

    Many apps do not close when you click the X in the upper right corner of the window.... it only closes that window, but the app continues running. That's not at all uncommon, especially if the app is starting as a service.

    Just a thought.
