Running WiseVector on a fresh XP install, with SP3 installed as well as the unofficial SP4 and post-SP4 update. Many times, after logging in, WV will freeze my taskbar and prevent me from opening programs, including Task Manager. This usually prevents me from using the Start Menu and therefore bars me from shutting down without holding down the power button. On the rare occasion that nothing has frozen, I will be alerted that "NotifyMsg" is not responding and will be given the option to end the task. After ending the task, the system will wait about half a minute to start shutting down. This happens with both 2.73 and the 3.00 beta, so I don't think it's a conflict with the Windows Firewall (which I have not disabled). Disabling automatic updates for WV also had no effect. After installing WV (which I have to do in Safe Mode), the problem vanishes. Is there anything I can do to prevent this problem, or should I wait for the next version?
