This never happens with my Macbook! Some anti-virus/malware programs have a checkbox that reads something like "Do not inform other processes of ........." (hide me). If you check it, the process is hidden from other applications. That means Windows or other programs cannot detect the presence or activity of that program, so it gets flagged as not running. The program is running in a stealth mode. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
