I learned that my getting the "WindowsFormsParkingWindow" error message is due to some part of one of the programs not shutting down when I want to shut down my computer. I learned that this is due to that program making use of the ".net" facility of MS Win XP.
For the record, I am using an ACER TravelMate 4220, with a CoreDuo processor running at 1.66 KHz. I have one gig of RAM on board. I am using MS Win XP Pro SP3.
Now back to the problem.
When I first had the problem, I found out that I had to have the Trend Micro AntiVirus Plus AntiSpyware program installed on my C: drive/parttition, instead of my D: drive/partition. After doing that installation everything went okay. Next, I installed Lavasoft's Ad Aware Free onto that D: drive/partition, and everything seemed to go okay. Then I ran "C Cleaner" (current update), and everything still seemed okay.
I installed Open Office 3.1 onto that D: drive/partition, and then tried a normal logoff and shutdown, I started getting the WindowsFormsParkingWindow, instead of a regular logoff and shutdown. Of course, I had to manually shut off my machine.
So far, I have ininstalled Open Office 3.1, but I am still getting that error message.
How can I find out which program or part of a program is the culprit? How would I recognize it when I would see it?
