    Hi guys,

    I haven't been able to find any information on how to overcome this

    When a third party software decides to 'stop responding' and I choose
    to "Close program", the application's window is closed, but the
    process is still running. If I select the persistent process and click
    the "End Process" button, the precess does not end; and there is no
    way I can force-close the process - except to restart the computer.

    Watch for a process called dumprep. I think that's what it is called. My

    processes are ending, dumprep always comes up. I kill that process and it
    closes just fine.
