Windows remain on screen when closed

  magc 12:02 16 Feb 2003

I have Sony FX705 running Windows XP Home.

This problem is persistant, Sony help isn't!

Occasionally when I attempt to close a window it remains on screen even though it is not shown in task bar and task manager does not show it running. When this occurs all other open windows then have same problem as I attempt to close them. Using task manager to shut down, EchoPortManager seems to be running (I don't know what this is and it might be a red herring).

Have you looked in Event viewer? this might give a clue to what is causing your problem.
When my computer came with XP preinstalled i had many problems IE hanging icons would stay on the screen i ended up having to format the HD and doing a clean install i used six floppys to start this of plus the recovery disk a real pain but it worked for me i did replace my scanner that did cause a problem with XP in my case
