Vista Business x64: Quickly shutting down apps causes them to "stop work"


Somewhat eXPerienced
24 Dec 2001
Hey guys,

Minor nuisance I have discovered with my version of Vista. There are some games where I can shut them down quickly, but correctly. In both WoW and Half Life, I can /quit and leave the game. My computer shuts them down properly, however Windows then reports that they have stopped working.

Besides changing the way I shut them down (if that even fixes anything), is there any way to stop Vista from doing this?

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
