    Some programs (currently hl.exe is doing it :/) are just not closing right. I end them with task manager and they dissappear from everywhere but Task manager, where they stay no matter how many times i click end process. I tried through command prompt, it said it terminated the process, but it just stays in the task manager process list. I also tried through EndItAll, which told me it didn't have permission to kill the program.

    Im currently using XP SP2...

    hl.exe is a half life executable. Go into your options in the game and see if there is an option to enable/disable auto updates etc.. make sure all options for things relating to HL running at startup are disabled... it could just be memory leak, are you current with all patches/updates for your game?

    It's not the games fault, so to speak. It's happening with alot of programs. Not every time i close them though. If a process is not responding and i end it via task manager, it refuses to dissappear from the process list.. Its getting really annoying :(
