[Apparently resolved in AB11]Shutting down computer

Post by rome » Mon Jul 10, 2006 4:08 am

Since upgrading recently to Avant's latest version, everytime I shut down my computer, an "Ending program" window for Avant.exe pops up, even tho I've already exited the program. Any way to get rid of this window when I'm shutting down?

Do you happen to have a dual core or hyper threaded processor? If so, it sounds like the problem described here. There may also be a working work around on the last page here

If that is not the problem, and when all else fails, try User Profile Hive Cleanup Service. It speeds up your shutdown to ~15 seconds or less, by killing unresponsive programs, thereby allowing profile settings to finalize.

This issue has seemingly been resolved in Avant Browser 11.
IE8(Pro), Microsoft Security Essentials
Main PC:

Secondary PC same as primary but with Windows 7 x64 Ultimate as the OS.
