How to keep Task Manager from looking for a solution?

When I close down a program via Task Manager, I find it annoying Windows 7 bringing up a box each time asking if I want Windows to look for a solution. How do I opt out of having that happen each time I close a program via Task Manager?

Thing is Caslon is why it is throwing that screen up? I am assuming it is doing it for a reason unless you have some assort of malware on board.
Have you run any scans if not try these for starters

ADW download from bleeping computer delete any rubbish found with the malware scans
(NB If one is running Kaspersky security it may rant about ADW - just ignore it or disable Kaspersky while the ADW is being used)

Actually the pop up window is saying "da da da isn't responding and windows is looking for a solution"

I have to hit cancel on that box. I find that annoying since I know why I'm shutting a program down. I don't need Windows looking for a solution. Besides, Windows seldom EVER finds a "solution" for me, unless I direct it more.
The thing is, when i hit ctrl alt del to bring up the Task Manager/Applications, it minimizes that program to the task bar, in which case I can simply right click on it and choose "Close Window" and it closes the program instantly. Compare that to letting Task Manager shut down that program and it takes 5 times longer while Windows wastes my time "searching for a solution ." That box goes away after 5 or 6 seconds, but what waste! Then Task Manager finally shuts down the program, taking 5 times longer than just right clicking "close window" on the minimized icon to taskbar that happens when you ctrl + alt+ del to bring up the Task Manager. Ridiculous. Therefore I want to prevent Windows "searching for a solution" Possible or not?

Yep have a go at what David suggested and just out of curiosity did you run any of those simple scans??

I did think I posted these scans but must be mistaken so run these to see if there is just a glitch in the system

Thats what I was searching how to do, THANKS! If you can, hit the SOLVED button for me. I run malware bytes all the time, good proggie. Not sure how malware or trojan would pester me about having windows search for a solution tho. Unless maybe a hacker makes it so Windows searches the net for a solution for you and downloads a trojan instead. Anyways, SOLVED.
