Win NT (2k, XP) are quite a bit better about this, but I believe 2k at least still suffers from this to some extent. If you want to fix the problem, upgrade to XP ;) Also, keep in mind that just because you "close" a program doesn't mean it's (or affiliated processes) not still running in the background. You can close running processes by hitting ctrl-alt-del once, highlighting individual tasks, and clicking "end task."Max Cowgill
