Run downloaded 1946 on XP Pro. I play offline campaigns, usually DGEN'd, and after quitting the game I can't start other applications like Firefox, Outlook Express, etc. I click the desktop icons for these apps and get no start ups. Task manager shows PC is idling. After a reboot all is normal again. Anyone else have this symptom? Anyone know what might be happening?
Some other programs running are Windows Explorer, Avast AV, ZoneAlarm, AdAware (8.0.3).

Look in Task Manager if IL2 is still listed there as running, also see if you see something taking up a huge amount of resources

I had this with an other game a while back and found it was still listed in task manager as running, turning the proces off in there fixed it for me.
I got rid of this isue by reinstalling the game, somehow something was corupted wich caused the game not to shut down correctly.
