[quote=siria] Oops... sorry for the trouble :( KM isn't so complicated really, there's just this kinda stupid bug: [b]If you don't close KM manually, but instead have the operating system close it automatically when shutting down, the browser thinks next time it had been crashed! [/b] [i](Not sure if that's only in the new beta version or also in KM154 already. Anyway, someone (deadlock?) found the reason recently and posted a fix, that will hopefully be included in the next version)[/i] Now if someone has the *[b]Loader[/b]* enabled, that means he wants the system to automatically pre-load parts of the engine at startup. Or perhaps you even have the browser fully added to your [b]autostart [/b]programs. Then KM opens automatically at each system start and BANG - if it wasn't closed manually last time, there you have the mess, a false crash alert at each system start... Am no expert, but suspect that in such configurations, uninstalling is hanging because parts of the KM engine are already running in the background?? - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Guess you have those possibilities now: - [b]To only stop that annyoing crash alert: [/b] [color=blue]add a special line to your config as a workaround to suppress that alert box[/color] (even if it really crashed last time), or manually close the browser each time before shutting down the system (bothersome), or disable the sessions plugin (F2/KM-Plugins) (but then your previous sessions are never remembered) - [b]Or uninstall it:[/b] You have to first kill the stuff that's seems running in background yet: Use the taskmanager to kill it / OR disable the automatic loader or automatic autostart of KM (by far most systems are fast enough anyway for manual starts). Basically KM is very simple, it only exists of its program folder and of the profile folder. You can just as well delete those two folders manually, but that certainly would "hang" as well if you don't close first your automatic startup stuff.[/quote]
