I have a program that will not reopen after I have closed it.  I attempt to open and it appears that nothing happens at all.


I have checked task manager and the application is not hanging in there.  The running processes and services seem to be identical prior to and after opening and closing.  It just will not reopen.


Pulling my hair out a bit over here.

What is the program?


If you go into C\Program files and open the problem software folder and double click on the programs exe in there, does it work then?

Check hidden icons in the taskbar to make sure the app isn't being minimized to there. If it is, open it from there and change the settings if you like (so when you click on the "close button" it closes rather than minimizes).
