    Windows 10 re starting closed programs

    I've recently noticed that sometimes, not always but sometimes. When I exit a program or game to desktop. Windows 10 decides to re launch that program or game.

    it is seriously annoying & was wondering if anyone has this problem & know of a fix?

    Yes, occasionally (but not reproducibly) when closing Internet Explorer. There doesn't seem to be any pattern, but it has only happened when there have been multiple tabs open and I close it from the red X top right.

    My outlook from work will reopen immediately right after I sign out?? Intermittent, 2-3 times a month

    Happens when Windows and the program thinks that it did not close with a clean shutdown, so it may reopen to fix any cache or temp setting stuff and then attempt another program shutdown. I would address it with the Game forums if others are having the same issues and see if there is an update or fix for the game.
