Dennis,

Actually, many programs do in fact check to see if there is already another
instance of itself running, and just open the file in the instance that is
running.

For example, Adobe Acrobat does check and open pdf files in an existing
instance.

Unfortunately, Protel does not check for much of anything, and the double
instance issue has been brought up before. I thought it might be possibly
responsible for some of the "hidden processes" that don't show up until you
go to shut down the computer.

Unfortunately, this particular problem is one of these "loose nut behind the
wheel" problems. It was just doing what you told it to do.
