As you can see from the screenshot I want to shut down/close this program which is Convert X To DVD. But all I see option wise is 'close window' - is that the same as 'close program' ? If not then how do I shut down/close a program or an app so that there isn't a build up of programs and apps all running at the same time upon start up resulting in a severe slowing down of my PC ?
Also, looking in my Task Manager/Start-Up I see something called 'AudialsNotifier' which has a high impact upon start-up - what is it and can I disable it ?

You can type msconfig in the search box. Select startup and disable any programs you don't want to start.

That just takes me to Task Manager. Can you answer my question ? Is 'close window' the same as 'close program' ? Or to put it another way, if I click 'close window' does that close the program/app ? So, what is this AudioNotifier ? For some reason you you didn't answer that one.

The answer is "it depends". If a program runs as a service, then closing the window doesn't stop it from running.

OK, what if the program is NOT a service ? If I close the window does that also close the program ? And if not then how do I close the program so that it's not running ?
And for the third time, what is this 'AudioNotifier' ?

I have a couple of programs that run in the background and not as a service. It just depends on the program. I don't really worry about it.

If you click on "File" In the menu on the left side across the top you shoud see an option to Exit - which will close/shut down the program.

There's also another option under Action called "Closed Program when finished" to have it close automatically once a conversion is completed.

Umm, where is this 'File' ? Where is this 'Menu' ? And 'across the top' of where ? Are you talking about the Task Manager ?

Your first screenshot with the program open, above the words "Tree View".

OK, got that. I thought you were talking about qBitorrent which is the one I can't seem to find a way to shut down other than going into the Task Manager and using 'End task' from there. But that isn't the normal way. What is the normal way to close a program with Windows 10 ? Using 'Close Window' doesn't shut it down.

It depends on the program. Close Window only does just that, close the current window.

Also, we don't support the use of torrents so can't help you with that specific program.

It's audialsnotifier and it appears to belong to a company named Audials AG and is some sort of music/video recording software.

Also, if you click the arrow beside the name of the audialsnotifier process in the Task Manager it will show what is using it below.
