Windows getting stuck on taskbar after closing

Q: Windows getting stuck on taskbar after closing

Occassionally the window of an ended process will get stuck on the taskbar. That is, it will appear in the taskbar with the original icon, but no title, and the original process is not running anymore according to the task manager.

They seem to be stuck down there until I log off and on again - which is quite annoying. Anyone know an easier way to get rid of them?

Is this a known bug or could it be caused by some third party software?

Preferred Solution: Windows getting stuck on taskbar after closing

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

This used to happen a lot with IrfanView 4.22 and 4.23 on older builds - 6801 and 7000 in particular for me. Using 7048 this almost never happens now - I'd chalk it up to Windows 7 being a beta OS and monitor it for now.

a big frustration I'm having with closing + I on F4 puts do Taskbar how with windows focus Alt -- fix? Win is my inability to close a lot of open windows using a keyboard shortcut In Mac and Ubuntu I can just repeatedly tap Ctrl Q Command Q closing windows with Alt + F4 puts focus on Taskbar -- how do I fix? in Mac to close one window after another quickly eg before shutting down But in Win I'm often presented with the situation where tapping Alt F the first time will close the window but tapping it a second time will prompt to shutdown the system ie after closing the first window the focus went onto the taskbar It prevents me from being able to repeatedly tap Alt F to close multiple windows Instead i have to stop and put focus back onto one of the remaining windows i still want to close before being able to use Alt F again -- a major PITA Any way to fix this to get focus to land on the next open window and NOT the taskbar after closing a window with Alt F

A:closing windows with Alt + F4 puts focus on Taskbar -- how do I fix?

This happens because other windows are minimized.
At the same time there is no combination to unminimize all. There is Shift+Win+M, but that is only undo for Win+M (which is minimize all).

As a solution You can use Alt+Tab to switch between minimized windows and close each with Alt+F4.
I do not see other natural (without 3rd party) fix here.

Hi,
I'm running a Dell Inspiron 6400 with Windows XP Home on it.
My problem is as such:
When ever I close an explorer window, the taskbar and desktop icons disappear for a few seconds...Its quite annoying, and it also closes any other Windows I have open.
Programs don't seem to be affected...

Has anyone come across this problem? And are there any solutions?
Much thanks for any help rendered.

I need to have my taskbar at the top of my screen but is it possible to make it so I can not drag a window behind it? Several times I have had to autohide the task bar just to get at the window to drag it back again.

Kind Regards, Paul

A:Taskbar needed at top but windows get stuck behind it.

My problem might be the same but displays differently.
I run Kodi in full screen 24/7
After some hours and a change to HDMI port 2 from port 1 (tv on port 1) if I minimize Kodi I find I have no taskbar at all and I have to restart windows explorer to get it back. I run my taskbar at the top too in autohide. Maybe I'll try the bottom and see what happens. I'm considering a fresh install.

Hey,
Quick question:
Does anyone know if there is a hotkey to close an item on the taskbar?
I know you can open them with Windows key+ 1,2,3,etc

But for example if I am watching a video in firefox (current window) and want to exit my music player(songbird, minimized in the background) So i can hear the video, is there a hotkey where i can simply press some key combination and select its number on the taskbar?

Thanks

A:Hotkey for closing taskbar items?

I may be missing your question entirely, but if you have the program on your taskbar, right click and choose 'close window'.

So lets say you have a program open, and its not pinned to the taskbar, calculator for example. You close it, and the animation for the programs icon on the taskbar disappears smoothly. Now, if I pin the calculator onto the taskbar and open it (or any current taskbar pinned item) and close it, the icon disappears with a sort of a chunky, or "blocky" animation leaving just the normal taskbar icon.

My question is, should this happen or is my Windows install lagging somehow? Can anyone recreate this and see if you get a similiar result? Simply, non taskbar pinned apps icons seem to close smoother, while ones that are pinned dont really have an animation and just close with maybe 3 different frames.

A:Quick Question About Closing Apps/ Taskbar (Could someone test this? )

Hello Keyes,

This would be the Animations in the taskbar visual effects setting. It's normal for there to be a slight delay with the animation. If it's to long or jagged, then you may have something else running that's using a lot of resources causing a temporary longer delay for this.

If you like, you could turn off (uncheck) this setting to have them be instant instead.

Hello Taskbar gets stuck I am having a Taskbar gets stuck small problem with the taskbar using Home Premium Build Every once in a while it seems to get quot stuck quot For example you know how when you mouse over a pinned icon you can see the outline on either side and the little ball of light beneath it When I mouse over an icon and then I move my mouse somewhere else that animation doesn't go away but stays there indefinitely Same goes for a running program The little glowing animation under the icon will stay there even when I move the mouse away Also the thumbnail previews for open windows only appear off and on sometimes they work and sometimes they don't This seems to happen purely at random and the only way I've been able to fix it is by restarting explorer Not a huge problem but annoying I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this or if they know why this happens

A:Taskbar gets stuck

Sounds like a driver or graphics card, may also be memory.

Go to device manager, look for yellow warnings signs of problems. Also look for updated drivers, update the graphics card.

Run memory diagnostics, see how memory is working.

Type event viewer in search, look for any errors.

My task bar mysteriously moved to the top of my screen. I know you can right click to "unlock the task bar" and then move it where you want it. But when I right click, I can choose unlock or lock, but then I still cannot move the task bar.

Also the task bar is black. I've never seen it that color before.

Any hints on what is going on? Solution?

Hallo tadd, I am working from memory as the mobo died in my Vista laptop.

You should be able to unlock it as you said, then click & hold down the mouse in an empty part of the task-bar & drag it to where you want (you wont see it drag it will just appear when you release the mouse)

As for the color mine has always been black but i would assume you could change the color through Control Panel then Personalize or right click on your desktop for the same option.

I hope this is of some help

Hi there, this happens when the process "explorer.exe stops responding. (It happens sometimes with my PC as well). To check what's causing this issue, download and install Process Explorer to see what's running under explorer.exe and accordingly eliminate this issue by removing that product.

Just tried it here with the task bar at top and no auto-hide. Power Shell does get it's title bar up under the task bar when you open it, but as soon as you resize it even a little it pops out from underneath. Definitely a bug that should be reported via the Feedback app.

I am betting it has something to do with a registry entry somewhere - but where and which one??? All files that have to do with it have been replaced from the Install disc, plus a repair (both ways) has been done on the system, still no joy.

Ok Kind of hard to explain so I' m supplying a screen shot. Recently I started having my task bar on the left and have started to like it. Then just now I found that nvidia can make it transparent which I tried and also like but now whenever I hit the start menu and click a program or click away, part of the start menu is ghosted into the task bar. The only way to get rid of it is to move the task bar or take a boxed window and rub it through underneath the task bar to make it disappear. Any suggestions?

(is "windows xp style" still present or is it gone ? )if "windows xp style" is not present (or greyed out), you might want to try this:* download and save this .zip file (right mouseclick > save target as.. > save it to the desktop) resources.zip* after downloading, unzip the file (unzip to resources\) (if you do not have unzip options, first install winrar trial* after unzipping, open the folder "resources" > open the folder "themes" > and then the folder "luna"* in the folder "luna", copy 'Luna.msstyles' and paste this in the folder C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes\Luna <---- in this folder 'luna'* if asked, say "yes" oon the question if the existing file gets replaced* then again right clicking on desktop > properties > appearance > themes : windows XP style should be there, choose it > OKHope it works, good luck !

Hi there My topic pretty much says it all but i'll repeat it anyhow I use my computer regularly while at work mostly to download torrents etc to be ready for watching when coming home from work This works flawlessly but I get a serious thorn in my side whenever I get back home For some stupid stupid reason my taskbar color won't reset back to pitch black like it's supposed to do This did not happen on my previous installation of win formatted about a year ago And it did not happen for the first couple of months after reinstalling win Same windows pro x etc etc To fix this problem I have to either manually re-run the windows assessment tool in computer properties or log out my current windows session only to relog back in again It's obviously some stuck up file that just doesn't wanna re-initialize Does anyone have any idea what this might be caused by Or have knowledge of any fix It's driving me nuts Any help is GREATLY appreciated Sneiper

A:After remote desktop, taskbar stuck in grey color

Welcome to Seven Forums Sneiper. This happens after remoting into your PC from another PC while at work, correct? Is the whole theme changing from Aero to basic? That usually happens when resources are low. In any case, next time it happens, try restarting Explorer and see if that corrects it.

Explorer - Add "Restart Explorer" to Desktop Context Menu

can you download it and install it on your computer?
then post a log

theres a possibility you might have to do a format and reinstall windows.
but see if you can get a log first

I've searched everywhere for the answer to this!! I can't believe this isn't bothering anone else?

I love the translucent look of windows, but when I have a window in full screen mode, I want the taskbar to be solid!! this was standard in vista! A translucent taskbar and frame makes it look like the window you're using isn't full screen, and I see I get drawn to it every time! hate it (the only thing I hate so far!).

Any ideas anybody? I know I can make it solid all the time, but thats not what I want either, I just want it to turn solid when a program is in full screen.

Please help me on this one!!

Hi and welcome.

I agree with you and my wife wanted it back to a solid blue.
OK here is the steps
1. Right mouse on Desktop and select Personalize.
2. Select Windows Color at the bottom of the screen.
3. Uncheck the Enable Transparency.
4. Make sure you select the color you want. I still like dark blue and make sure you Color inensity is about 75%

Hopefully that does it for you.

Since a few weeks ago after I installed Windows 7 x64 I keep on getting random BSOD but not frequently (number of 3). First one I really didnt paid attention how it happen but the second one was after exiting a game of Counter Strike Global Offensive and entering teamspeak to talk after a few seconds BSOD. The last one i got i searched on the web how to find the error and i manage to get the file and the error state.

The bugcheck was: 0x00000050 (0xfffff900c5844cf0, 0x0000000000000000, 0xfffff9600031c69d, 0x0000000000000000).

A:BSOD when resizing/closing World of Warcraft, also when closing Chrome

Hi Haxiel.

The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Dont run any disc cleanup tool before you upload another zip.

A:Slow browser, IE closing, Outlook and Yahoo closing

Hi Elise,
thank you. I ended up getting rid of PC Tools Internet Security and switching to AVG Basic Free. I think most of the major problems went away.
Yahoo has stayed up, Outlook has stayed up, browser seems to work quickly, facebook didn't have floating text and pictures anymore, was able to do some posting, sent some large emails. But, and not exactly sure, IE has frozen up, but not as often. The dds program you had me run this morning froze and I had to do a hard shut off, task mgr didn't respond and the weirdest thing of all, the clock stopped. Can't say I have ever seen that. So I am not sure what exactly is going on, if it really is malware or some setting is messed up. I wasn't able to run video on a site last night. Major improvement since I got rid of PC tools, but not quite right. Sorry, nontechie.

A:Vista Gets Stuck, and Stuck on windows 7 install

I'd suggest starting with running a memory test ( http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tuto...torial146.html ); then following that with a bootable hard drive diagnostic:

Here's a description from my blog:

Code:
What you'll need:
- a blank CD
- a computer with an internet connection where you can download a file, install a small program, and burn a CD (doesn't have to be the computer that you'll be testing).

1. Determine the make and model of your hard drive

- In Windows XP - Go to Start...Run...and type in "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Click on the + sign next to Disk Drives and use Google to search the information listed there)

- In Windows VISTA - Go to Start...and type in "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Click on the + sign next to Disk Drives and use Google to search the information listed there

- From outside of Windows: Unplug the system from the wall, remove the battery (if it's a laptop) and crack the case open. Look inside to locate the hard drive and write down the make and model number (although the model number isn't required for the test, it will help you to identify what sort of drive to replace if the test says that the drive is bad).

If you're unable to see the hard drive info, follow the steps below for the Hitachi DFT. At the screen where it asks you if the list is correct, the model number of your drive will be there. Use Google to search for the model and that will let you know the manufacturer.

NOTE: It's strongly recommended that you use the test from the manufacturer of your hard drive. Most manufacturers build in tests that are only for their drives (in addition to the standard S.M.A.R.T. tests) - so using their test will give more accurate results.

2. Locate the support website of the hard drive manufacturer from the following list and download the appropriate file to your computer. FWIW - the first link for each drive usually contains more information/instructions about running the test.

Hitachi - http://www.hitachigst.com/hdd/support/download.htm#DFT Download this image for CD's: http://www.hitachigst.com/hdd/support/downloads/dft32_v415_b01.iso

Western Digital - http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?level1=6&lang=en Download the Diag504fCD.iso file on this page: http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?groupid=601&sid=30&lang=en

Seagate - http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools Download the Seatools for DOS ISO CD-ROM Image from this link: http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools/seatooldreg (English version here: http://www.seagate.com/staticfiles/support/seatools/SeaToolsDOS213bEURO.ISO )

Maxtor - Seagate SeaTools has replaced the Maxtor diagnostics. Use the Seagate SeaTools links above.

Toshiba - I'm unable to locate any tools for Toshiba. I'd suggest the Hitachi DFT (Drive Fitness Test) from above.

Fujitsu - http://www.fujitsu.com/us/services/computing/storage/hdd/support/utilities.html Download the DOS Diagnostic Tool Ver. 7.0 (For IDE/ATA/SATA Hard Drives from this link: http://www.fujitsu.com/downloads/COMP/fcpa/hdd/utilities/fjdt_700.zip You'll have to copy the file to a DOS boot CD and manually execute the FJDT.exe file once you've booted to DOS. If this is too difficult, use the Hitachi DFT (Drive Fitness Test) from above.

Samsung - http://www.samsung.com/global/business/hdd/support/utilities/Support_HUTIL.html Download the Hutil 210 ISO (for CD-ROM drive).zip from here: http://www.samsung.com/global/business/hdd/support/downloads/Hutil210_iso_for_CDROM_drive.zip You must unzip the file before you can burn (NOT copy) the ISO image to a CD.

IBM - IBM has merged with Hitachi. Use the Hitachi DFT (Drive Fitness Test) listed above.

3. If you do not have a disk burning program that's capable of burning ISO images to your CD drive, I suggest this free tool: http://isorecorder.alexfeinman.com/isorecorder.htm Select the ... Read more

When I open any programs or files, they seem to stick together and I don't want that. I would want them to move individually instead of all at once. For example, if I open two firefox and two notepad, when I drag one of the notepad in between the two firefox, I can't do it. Two of the notepad drags at once and I can't separate them. It wasn't like this an hour ago. I don't know what happened. Please help! What happened? Thank you so much for your help and concern!

A:Programs and files on taskbar are stuck together or "grouped"! Help!

Right click on the Taskbar. Select Properties. Taskbar Buttons, click the drop down box, and select 'Never Combine'.
This will separate the taskbar buttons and allow you to manage them individually.

Obvious to anyone. You have three malware apps running live at the same time. You have Avast, Kaspersky, and AVG.

You need to remove them all and install Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST.

If you continue to crash even after removing them upload the DMP file as you have old drivers that need updating.

Scroll down the page to Parasitic , Download Ad-Aware SE , Spy Bot Search and Destroy , Spy Ware Blaster . Setup and update according to the tutourials. Go to Panda Active Scan or other online virus scanner and run a scan . If you do not have an anti virus program aboard go to Grisoft AVG and download the personal free edition . Use these programs only for now and shut down any other spyware / malware programs you mayhave running . After using the programs from Rollin Rog Security Tools come back and let us know how things are now running .

A:Windows XP hangs a little after closing Firefox or Windows Mail and lag games.

A little update...

I ran Advance WindowsCare V2 Peronal and let it "clean and fix" everything but I still get the delay/lag after closing almost any program. For instance, I opened up Windows defrag utility, closed it and tried clocking on start and it didn't open for about 3 or 4 seconds. I don't know what's causing this but it will also slow my game mention above down like I have something else using a lot of CPU power or something for a few seconds...and this happens in the game quite often...I'd say it does it at least once every minute.

Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this? It's very annoying and I would hate to have to reinstall Windows since I just literally got everything reinstalled and copied back over when this problem started occurring. If you need any more info or logs, let me know. Thanks.

A few things to try: run an anti virus scan; download/install/run AdAware and Spybot Search and Destroy (both available at Download.com); reinstall Internet Explorer or...

If these do not help another possibility...
Please download HijackThis - this program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Double click on the program to run it.

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit Scan and then click on Save log.
3. Get HijackThis Analyzer and save it to the same folder as the hijackthis.log file. Run HijackThis Analyzer and type in y if you agree. The result.txt file will open up in Notepad. Copy the whole result.txt log and post it in the forum. We do not need the original hijackthis.log (unless we ask for it). Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless.

Post the log in the HighJackThis Log Help forum

For example, if I go to a site and a small window pops up with some kind of info regarding the site and it then closes, then the original window also closes. Can someone please help me solve this? Is this a common problem with VISTA, or is it just on my computer? Many thanks!

Hello,
I'm having problems with keeping folders open on my computer. Since Im not very technical I'll just explain the process and problem.
I wish to access a video file (.avi) on my computer so i open up my comp, open the required drive, and select the appropriate folder. When in the folder sometimes the window displaying the files will shut down after one or two seconds displaying the the message that windows explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close (sometimes this only happens after clicking on an actual file, depends on the folder.) I'm not sure why or if its a virus of some sort (I have an up-to-date version of Norton protection centre which doesn't detect anything), any help would be much appreciated because its becoming quite an annoyance not being able to access files.
(the files worked fine before so i know its not because of them.)
Thanks in advance.

Hi Folks
When I have multiple windows open, there appears to be a slight delay in the tabs in the task bar closing although the window itself closes immediately.
I hope this makes sense.
Because of this delay I often end up closing IE windows in error.
Apart from this my system appears to work well and is not otherwise sluggish.

Any suggestions or ideas?
Thanks

An odd thing as occured in the past week.
I am using Vista 64bit OS.
As we all know, when we click the (x) in the upper right to close a web page, it should close on one click. Also when going to the task bar and right clicking to close the page.
It is taking me three or more clicks to close the page. The back arrow seems un-affected. The open web page seems to hang and then closes.
I have no problems in closeing normal windows within the os.
I've checked for malware using malwarebytes and nothing comes up. I also have no viruses according to my payed version of AVG. I keep my system clean of junk files etc.

Any advice and or guidedence would be great.
Thank you.

Hi.

My problem is that when I leave my computer on and go away for a while that it goes to the welcome screen (not the problem). After I log back on windows explorer usually closes down. So the taskbar and all my icons are gone. It also happens during games sometimes.

Can someone help?

Also, My firefox keeps clearing my bookmarks and personal settings.Is there a way to fix that?

Thanks,
Kaku
 

A:Windows Explorer Keeps Closing

For your Firefox problem, try the following.
Start> Mozilla Firefox> Mozilla Firefox(Safe Mode). This starts Firefox without
any extensions and the default theme. If this solves the problem, then it is an
extension or theme effecting Firefox. If that doesn't help, create a new profile.
Your profile may have become corrupt.

Hi, I wonder if anyone else has seen this issue. If I open a couple of tabs in IE11 and then close one of them down. If I then put my cursor on IE11 in the task bar it shows the tab is still open with a revolving circle in the middle and does not close down. If I then try to go to the other open tab I get 'websitename not responding' the only way I can close down the tab is by using task manager to close down the whole of IE11. Any help gratefully received as ever. Al

Whenever I open a certain folder on one of my external hard drives, a message pops up saying "windows explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close". The folder is one of several, all containing avi files, opening any of the other folders doesn't cause this problem. If I ignore the message (ie don't click send/don't send report) then I can usually use the folder and files within as normal, but if I click, then any windows of any drives I had open all close. I used flash disinfector but the problem remains. Please help! Thank you!

I have a PC in shop that exhibits the following:

Internet Explorer (6 SP 1) and Outlook Express closes within seconds of opening. IE will show connecting to the default MSN home page just before closing.

Firefox and Netscape (7.2) will both run and operate on the net.

AVG, Spybot, Spyware Guardian and Blaster are on the machine. CWshredder has been run, Hijackthis was used to clean up the unneeded entries. Houcall.trendmicro.com can't be run as it doesn't run (seemingly) on Firefox, and the manual download for netscape can't see the directory (plugins), even when directed to it.

Using task manager and closing every process possible, IE and OE are still closed ASAP. Furthermore, Services.MSC is closed ASAP as is System Restore. MMC will launch, but if you try to go to any of the tools it closes. Even using Windows Explorer and typing in a url results in closing of the WE window once it hits the web site.

An XP Home SP2 CD has been used to repair restore (in process again now) the installation with no change.

Am looking for a possible solution that doesn't involve a fresh install (full install or slicking the machine).

A:some gremlin is closing my 'windows'

i'm having trouble again and wanted to provide more information in case it's relevant. i closed all applications and went to hit the start button so that i could shut the computer off. the start menu appeared for a split second, then disappeared. when i ctrl+alt+delete i see that spicetray is running as an application. perhaps that is part of the problem?

A:Windows Explorer Keeps Closing

When I try to open a media file (video-audio) it comes up with the message, windows explorer must close then gives me an option to send an error report i have ran, adaware se, spybot, bugdoctor and mcafee. What operating system are you using?If it is XP or XP Pro, go to system restore and pick a restore date from before you began experiencing this problem.

Using windows 2000. I keep getting the following error:

"iexplore.exe has generated errors and will be closed by windows"

Doesn't seem to matter where I surf to it just pops up and closes my window. Very aggravating.

Any ideas please?

Update: I've discovered that the problem lies in the file called ntdll.dll. I cannot simply delete it and replace it unfortunately. I have recently done a reformat and clean install of windows. Got all IE and windows security updates. I have no idea what could be causing the problem but it seems to be getting worse as I use the computer.

Hi, my computer just recently started acting up, whenever i open up a program. It works for a little bit, then i start to use it, it freezes up and i get a (NOT RESPONGING) next to the program name. I go to task manager and try to shut it off manually, but i get the end task warning screen with a yellow exclamation point in the bottom right hand of the program icon. The message says that closing this program may cause immediate instability on your computer . . . Then, my computer totally freezes and i have to maunally turn it off.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hello - Last Tuesday I got a quot Windows Security quot virus and I thought I removed it by using the steps from bleepingcomputer com The real issue began on Monday when I received a quot Generic Host Win quot error I am not sure if the two are related After this my computer starting behaving very strangely I sometimes have trouble opening new internet explorer windows and when I finally do get one open it can sometimes Windows Explorer not is closing refuse to Windows Explorer is not closing close Yesterday I received a blue screen error and the message that quot your computer has recovered from a serious error quot The only changes I made to my computer after eliminating the virus was downloading the update for AVG Free Antivirus program Since I have tried to restore my computer to an earlier time and I have run scans with quot Malware Bytes quot a number of times The first time the program found about issues that I promptly cleaned off my system Since I have run the program a few times but no issues were returned Is there something I need to do to Malware Bytes to detect whatever is messing with my computer I thought restoring and running the scans fixed the error but later that day I received another Win error The strange thing is my computer seems to behaving normally today I am wondering if anyone can offer some advice as to what to do next here Thank you in advance for your assistance Mike

Has anyone else noticed this,

I am using a browser, and for example looking at the forum here. When I close the browser without logging out from the forum and then restart the browser I am still logged in.

This never happens with Vista, I always have to login again

Does seven not close the programs properly to speed up the re-opening??

Does this not infringe on some aspect off security? Not for me I am the only user

Could this be a bug?

This works for both IE and Firefox

Hi Pooch,

When you logged in for the first time at the forum did you by any chance leave the remember me checkbox?

I am always logged in automatically at home, but on non secure locations I uncheck the option so as the site asks me to log in each time
