Default Lotus notes won't close

Hit the close button and it starts to close, but doesn't. Eventually you get the "...not responding" pop-up. It can be killed via task manager, but if you do this you have to restart the computer. Lotus 7 by the way and XP Pro. I hate lotus. Thankfully this problem is only happening on one PC. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it already. Maybe I will uninstall, delete, edit registry, reboot, re-install and see if that helps. Using Lotus notes just for email purposes is absurd. It is much too big for that. And maybe 5% of our users actually use it for more than just email.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the variables....it ain't your variables, it's your constant.

Used to use Notes at my old work place...

Simply grab a copy of killnotes and run it when Notes screws up. It does what it says and you dont have to restart your PC

KillNotes - Restart Lotus Notes without restarting your PC

I found that, but that seems like a round about way of doing it. Guess I could just put a shortcut on her desktop to use instead of exiting notes. I hate notes.

Yep that's exactly what i did, killnotes on the desktop and bam! - take that notes!

I didn't like it at the start but got used to it. We had the whole database thing going on as well.

Does what it needs to but i was to used to Outlook but nice to have some Notes experience!
