I've got my new and ever-so-beautiful MobilePro 900. So far its been working like a charm.
Yesterday though, my friend asked to give it a try... She is a writer as well, and put in a flash card. All her documents opened, BUT... (dum dum daaa) she noted one - using a program called YWriter2 wouldn't open. Fine. We tried to close it - not that it opened.

Now I've got the "YWriter2" sitting in the taskbar. We couldn't get it to close.
Tried to kill the program from "Task Manager"...
but it still sits there as an block in my taskbar.

I thought suppending the machine would help: no.
No luck killing it through Task Manager.

I'm quite unfamiliar with Windows CE 2000.
Any suggestions?
I don't know if I should do a hard reset...and thought: ask here first. It might be something I can clean from a command prompt.

regards,
Zero!

Did you try uninstalling the program using Control Panel>Remove Programs : "YWriter2"?

Did you try a soft reset? (Flip 900 over and use stylus to press reset button)

Hey Hurricane,

It isn't in the liste of programs. My rather technical friend tells me it didn't even try to install it.

Not sure how to do a soft reset on this machine.
but i'm willing to try ...
thanks

Leave it running, flip the 900 over -the reset button (hole) is in the bottom (look for it) and press it using the tip of your stylus.

TaaaaaaaDaaaaaaa!
thanks. I probably wouldn't have kept it running. And, LOL.. didn't even see the reset button when I first looked.
(hm. better start thinking about getting some glasses!)

I send you mental hugs and/or chocolate chip cookies.

John, I don't think you can remove a program in Windows CE while it's running.
