    Well lads.

    The last couple of days I am having a strange issue with closing programs down,
    I only notice it with games.
    When ever I exit a game, it remains in the task manager for over 10 minutes and it cannot be ended in anyway. The only way to sort it out is to just wait around or restart the computer.

    I believe this has only just started to happen 2 days ago when I got my new GPU " ASUS Geforce GTX 560 Ti Direct CUII 900Mhz TOP "

    The software that was installed could have caused it??

    ASUS Splendid
    ASUS SmartDoctor
    ASUS GamerOSD

    Any suggestions?

    possible,, try uninstalling one at a time and see if everything gets back to normal,,, btw that time taking to close games do they still take up ram space?

    Yea they take up a small amount, Shogun 2 total war uses over 900mb while it's running, but once it's closed, it goes down to 130mb. After 5 minutes it goes down to just 2mb. then after 5 minutes it closes!

    But I shall uninstall these programs and see what happens!
