This app is preventing you from restarting.

Hi all. This is a problem I've been having on my Windows 10 PC from the beginning of using it with LiveCode. It seems that some process isn't winding itself up after I exit the Livecode IDE, even though it shows as having quit. Later, when I restart the computer, I consistently get the message "This app is preventing you from restarting.", with the folder my project is in (this happens with all projects, not just one specific file). If I restart the machine without having run LC, I don't get this message. Any thoughts?
Hypertalk developer on and off since the days of SuperCard. Currently using LC to do rapid prototyping for a new kids' toy.

LC won't quit if any background processes are running, and the IDE has a few. You may just have to quit manually before restarting.
