    Hi guys,

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

    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.

    I am currently using Vista Ultimate x64, and I'm the Administrator.
    I'm simply referring
    to processes of third-party software (e.g. Firefox,uTorrent,Oper
    etc...)

    Here's the strange thing: generally I can end any process through Task
    Manager, until the program decides to stop responding, that's when I
    am unable to end it's process

    Hi,

    Might be locked in a loop. Is it always the same software or does it vary?
    Has the machine been thoroughly scanned for malware under Safe mode?

    Watch for a process called dumprep. I think that's what it is called. My
    Vista Home Premium x64 has programs freeze up sometimes, and while those
    processes are ending, dumprep always comes up. I kill that process and it
    closes just fine.
