Windows 7: Exit works VERY slowly

Exit works VERY slowly

When I exit WLM 2011, the program stays on the screen, and the desktop icons appear one at a time again very slowly. I usually clear the screen and get back to the desktop with a Winkey-d or "show desktop" icon. But I shouldn't have to do that to clear WLM from the screen. This happens only in WLM. I tried a repair to Windows Live Essentials, but that didn't correct it. A restart didn't help, either. A few weeks back I uninstalled and reinstalled WLM 2011, and that seems to have worked for a few days, but the problem has returned. My nVidia driver is up to date. Any ideas on what's going on? Thanks.

Are you using any addons with WLM 2011?

Msn Plus, A-Patch, could be related to that..

No, this either seems to be a common issue, or just a frequent "bug".

I have experienced the same thing any time I try to use (and get used to WML 2011)... In the end I just got back to v2009 and won't bother updating until MS kills support for that version.

Punkster: Thanks for the addon information. I have no addons.

Gornot: Thanks for the information. Is there a site from which I can download a previous version of WLM?

There you go download one of those and see if the problem remains, if the problem is solved, then that was it... a WLM bug!

I would recommend going to OldApps.com and download the online instealler instead. The files for v2009 are still available directly from Microsoft. I personally don't trust such offline installers, as they were never available by Microsoft (unless I'm mistaken).
