Avant leaves more than one icon in taskbar

Post by Noyb » Mon Mar 16, 2009 11:33 pm

Hey everybody! :)

Yesterday I used Avant, then when I closed it, I noticed its icon/picture was still in the taskbar. I tried hovering over and clicking on it, but nothing happened. I reopened Avant, and another icon appeared right beside it. I tried hovering over and clicking on both icons, and only one of them brought up the menu. Then, today, I noticed that two AB icons were still in the taskbar when I closed Avant. Both were unresponsive to hovering and clicking. I reopened Avant, and there were then three AB icons, with only one being responsive. I restarted the system and that took care of it. Sorry for all this rambling.....if none of it makes sense to you, here's a pic of what I'm talking about. I'm running AB 11.7 B23 on Windows XP Pro SP3, with IE 7. There's more system info in my signature.....

I have seen that behavior sometimes when using the tray icon. When I disabled the icon in options everything was ok. The tray icon was preventing Avant from closing correctly in rare circumstances (for me).

Thanks, kudos! :) I'd like to add that it happened to me again a few days ago. I was too lazy to restart, so today the extra Avant icons were still there. I went into Task Manager and noticed that it showed Avant running (in Processes). I ended it, and the icon disappeared. So my situation is probably like yours, Kudos, where it just isn't closing all the way.
