Windows 7: Stubborn Programs on Shutdown

25 Apr 2010   #11

Win 7 64-bit

"Nope... killing the OS will not allow the ASUS tool to continue."

Ah, I'm not explaining the behavior I'm seeing carefully enough. Canceling shutdown results in the immediate termination of that ASUS app without further interaction with it. Either one of these processes, on termination, allows the other to complete. You thought I was talking about the whole OS... I see the confusion. It's just the shutdown process that, if canceled, allows the ASUS program to come to its natural termination. Does that make more sense?

Either way, no worries. It's just a little shutdown flaw with an easy workaround, nothing to really worry about.
