I am having an issue with Window Media player. When I am getting ready to shut it down, it would not follow prompt to terminate, it just would not end. What I end up to do was to shut the computer down to enable termination of the program. Can you tell me whats going on? What is the proper way to remedy the issue? Thanks. YOYO. :thumbsup:

Hi MGBY

Try using ALT + F4 to close an open window.

Cheers

Sorry I don't. Remember that a simple reboot will fix a multitude of small problems. If you install ERUNT, a backup of your registry will be done at the same time.
Glad you got sorted.

ROB : Yes . I do use ERUNT on a regular basis to backup the registry, and I do know that reboot does repair minor issues. I do thank you for reminding me of their availability. Thank you for all your help. Cheers. YOYO. :thumbsup:
