Hi, CCp here again!

I dont know what I did but all of the sudden I get a WMS Idle Window when I shut down my computer. It asks me to shut the program down. So I click on end program and my computer takes forever to shut down. Eventually it does shut down. I checked the internet and it suggests that I uncheck the Office plug-in on my Norton program. I did that and it didnt help. I am running XP.

Hoping someone can help with this one cause its irritating. :thumbsup:

Hi CCp,

Welcome to BleepingComputer.

There should be a file name associated with that error. Can you give me that? Microsoft references serveral things so that would help cut down the responses.

Hi, well the situation has changed a bit now.
I no longer get the End program window for WMS Idle, i now get the end program window for ccAPP (whatever that is). I dont see any filename associated with it. I only get the window asking me to close the program. So i click on end program and my computer takes forever to shut down. I never had this before, its a new computer and all of the sudden this is happening.
I dont know what else to tell you on this. I am having problems with worms and I just downloaded spybot and adware so I am finding some stuff now. I will go and search BC for the ccapp and see if there is anymore information i can give you. Thank you so much for responding.
I did a search on BC for ccapp and its scary! I have Norton Internet Security 2005 not Norton Antivirus 2003 so I dont think the ccApp file name is valid on my computer. There are so many with that name, I dont know which one I have! I can see the file under the processes in my task manager and its in all caps, CCAPP.exe. Does that help?
