Whenever I open any of the items in the MMC tree, click on any of the details to an error and then I attempt to close MMC, it says that I must close all windows before closing MMC. But I've closed everything! The only way to close MMC is via Task Manager. MMC hangs whether I open as a user of as an Administrator. My OS is Windows 7, 64-bit and it's a one month old Dell desktop.

Thanks,

John

It may be possible that some process opened through a snap-in is active. Use ProcessExplorer and find out which active processes are being run as a child processes of MMC.EXE

Process Explorer didn't display any child processes for MMC. If I click on its properties, I can see 15 threads (TIDs) associated with MMC; however, I don't know anything about these threads.

Do you see any error events in the Event Viewer? What does your Event Viewer show? Type Event Viewer in Start Menu search box and you would find it.

Well not much MMC related events. The events are for Internet Explorer. Have you installed some new software lately? Sometimes a software program, even a toolbar can interfere with snap-ins.

In addition to IE9 Beta, I have the usual applications like Adobe Reader 9, Belarc Advisor, Secunia PSI, Malewarebyte's AntiMalware,CCleaner, MS Office 2010 Suite, Mozilla Firefox 3.6 and miscellaneous stuff that Dell loaded (got rid of most of them).

Here are two events that have been appearing lately:
