I'm starting to notice some anomalies with Win2K. Recently, I've experienced sluggish performance and in checking the taskbar programs, I've found that some program shut down ands not reopened, even days ago, still appear in the Taskbar list and are using memory. Three I've seen are Paint Shop Pro(v.7), running for 2 days; Hoyle Casino, running for 66 hours; and Outlook 2000, still running 2 hours after I closed it. I realize that in most cases I can just "End Task", however not in Hoyle case. (I got the message that it was in use and could not be shut down. I had to reboot to clear it.) Any clues?
