Vivaldi running background process after closing application
[i]Build 1.0.334.37 (32 bit)[/i] [i]Windows 10 x64[/i] This happens just about every time and I have to shut it down view Task Manager. Attachments: [img]https://forum.vivaldi.net/uploads/attachments/43106/vivaldirunningstill.jpg[/img]
Seems something crashed your browser or a anti-virus scanner blocks ending of processes.
Please try first LATEST Snapshot 1.0.380.2 from https://vivaldi.net/en-US
and reports whats going on with the version.
Updated to most recent version. It's still doing it. This happens every time I close Vivaldi. I experimentally turned off Windows Defender's real-time protection, but the process is still running when I close the application.
Any thoughts on some kind of report I might be able to generate? I want to help nail this.
Strange. Perhaps something in your Vivaldi browser profile is wrong.
Plese try this:
1. Close Vivaldi
2. WIndowskey+ R
3. Enter cmd.exe and hit ENTER key to start DOS box
4. backup you profile by typing
REN "%LOCALAPPDATA%\Vivaldi" Vivaldi_BAK
and hit ENTER key
5. Start Vivaldi
6. Surf around
7. Close Vivaldi
Any not ending Vivaldi processes?
You can get your old profile back in DOS box by typing
DEL /S "%LOCALAPPDATA%\Vivaldi"
REN "%LOCALAPPDATA%\Vivaldi_BAK" Vivaldi
Getting "The syntax of the command is incorrect"
Sorry, my mistake!
