    no, this is another funky simply doesn't stop it...I have to manually click the red X in the top right corner...then wait about 7 seconds before it actually closes...more strangeness...after several power down reboots, then waiting 10 minutes for things to settle down (no disk activity) clicking to various websites and then various links in those websites are still very slow 10 to 20 seconds before they execute , or just flat out don't work...this is in Edge...same slowness/lack of response from IE too and this is with the disk drive LED not lit and no grinding heard...
