Did you close the process in task manager? It is also important that you wait for a while. Then restart your PC and check if the process is still active. This is necessary because W10 automatically re-opens processes during the next boot when they have not been closed correctly before shut-down.

Hello Mike

Try these steps one by one.........

1)  Regardless weather or not this will fix your Issue,  Delete the Shaders folder and the Prepar3D.cfg file and let Prepar3D generate these again when launched next.

2)  Do you have any FSDT Add On's,  If so please See Here

3)  Right click and Rename your 2 dll.xml files, the one in ProgramData and AppData\Roaming,  Then launch Prepar3D, Shut it down and test ?   Does this work ? 

4)  Right click and Rename your 2 exe.xml files, the one in ProgramData and AppData\Roaming.  Then launch Prepar3D, Shut it down and test ?   Does this work ? 

 

If Renaming any of these files resolved your Issue you can then look closer at your Utility Add On's 

You can just simply rename these files back again when you are finished

I am not sure if I explained correctly. First, manually close the processes in task manager! Then wait one minute, then restart your system.

and thank you all for your help.
