OK this sounds weird, but I have experienced with it during the last months...

I have a shortcut to closewin.exe on my TLB. When I click it, the mouse-cursor changes to a arrow+hourglass thing and the default Windows XP shutdown dialog is displayed.

Now when I move my mouse (still with the hourglass) to the dialog, this dialog disappears. I must wait several seconds until the hourglass has disappeared and *then* move the cursor.

Has anyone else ever noticed that closewin.exe aborts by itself?

Solved in XP SP2 - Dracula - 10-09-2004

Good news! After I've installed XP SP2, I've never seen this problem anymore... Guess it had more to do with Windows itself than with closewin.exe Big Grin
