PatchMyPC won't fully close when I exit
« on: January 22, 2019, 09:36:53 PM »
On my Windows 7 Professional 64 bit laptop, I noticed that when I close PatchMyPC (via the red x in the corner of the window), it leaves PatchMyPC.exe running as a process in task manager. I cannot shut down my PC unless I go to task manager and kill that process. Is there a work-around to that?  It is still otherwise a terrific program, but I wish it would clean itself up a little better when I close it.

Do you have any options enabled in the options menu?

Technical Options
  • Autostart Updates on open
  • Autoclose apps before update
Logging Options
  • Append Computer Name to Log
Visual Options
  • Delete Desktop Shortcuts for Apps
  • Minimize to Tray When Closed
As I was making this list, I suspect it is that minimize to tray option that was the problem. I unchecked it, closed the program, and checked for the running process and did not see it. I guess I just diagnosed it and fixed it?
