Won't shut down.

Not sure if anyone else has this issue but with the 2 newer versions:
Avant Browser 2016 build 12
Released 11.09.2016
Avant Browser 2016 build 11
Released 10.31.2016
my computer won't shut down. I will close the browser and shut down my computer and it will sit with a black screen and the fan still running and power light still on. I have to manually push and hold the power button for it to go off. I'll turn the computer back on and shut down again and it will remain on. Never had this problem before and only upgraded the browser, nothing else. I see there is another new release but I'm hesitant to do it because I'm tired of doing system restores to go back (just going back to the older browser didn't work). I wouldn't mind leaving my edition (Ultimate 2016 build 10) as is if I didn't get reminded everytime I open Avant that a new version is available (and yes I have that box unchecked where it says notify me when there is a new version).

Anyone else experience this or am I alone?

Not sure if this will help you, but there's another box to be unchecked "automatically install hotfixes"

My advise is to go to the offical download site: http://www.avantbrowser.com/download.aspx and download build 17 (latest build)

Make sure All of Avant is closed when you install build 17

If this won't work, go back to build 10.

You could also try to uninstall Avant first, then reboot and then install build 10 http://avant.it-mate.co.uk/?c=Download& ... /16_Series

If you open Task Manager before you shut down, is Avant still running?

I believe it is still running. I couldn't say for certain right now because I'm back to an older version.
