Windows 7: Processes not shutting down

Processes not shutting down

Hi all,

I am running Win7 64 Bits, installed from scratch and all is not too bad EXCEPT that processes do not terminate. What a pain in the nuts.

Often, when I shutdown an application, the application window closes but the process remains in Task Manager. Killing the process does not do anything. It seems to affect any programs, no one in particular. The only cure is to reboot the system.

1. Anybody else having this mega problem?

2. Is it 64 Bits problem only? Is it fine under Win7 32 Bits?

3. Any other way to kill the tasks?

Please help before I throw my laptop by the window!
Thanks

Hello,

Have you tried quitting task manager and restarting it? Perhaps it is not updated when you close a process.

The Task Manager is updated. The proof is that if you try to start Firefox again, it complains that the process is already running and ask to be shutted down first.

MSINFO32:
Please go to Start and type in "msinfo32.exe" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Save the report as an .nfo file, then zip up the .nfo file and upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.

If you're having difficulties with the format, please open an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt and type "msinfo32 /nfo C:\Users\Public\Desktop\TEST.NFO" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Then navigate to the C:\Users\Public\Desktop directory to retrieve the TEST.NFO file. If you have difficulties with making this work, please post back.
