Windows 7: What's different about W7 application termination?

What's different about W7 application termination?

Hi, A while ago I raised this thread about a problem when quitting Word 2000 which remains unresolved. Since then I've had the same thing happen with one other piece of third-party software. The author of that program cured the problem with a recompile so I tried to contact him to find out what he did but with no success. As with Word the application worked ok and didn't crash until it tried to terminate.

It seems that the version of Windows 7 that I'm using must handle some aspect of termination differently to earlier versions and I was wondering if anyone had any ideas about this. This is just for my curiosity, really, because I've stopped using Office 2000 in favour of Open Office (although in fact it's only Word itself in the Office suite that is affected) and I don't experience the problem with any other software on my machine.

In a past life I've written a fair bit of code although not for use under Windows. However I assume that running programs make a procedure call to release the memory and generally tidy up before termination and presumably the crash occurs on return from this call. Can anyone briefly describe the procedure for termination and possibly speculate about what might be going wrong?
