ExitThread won't.

How are you exiting The Proxomitron? Among other 
things, it sticks itself in the Windows system tray. You 
actually exit the program by rightclicking that icon and 
selecting exit, or you double click The Proxomitron's 
sys tray icon, then select Exit from the File menu. Any 
other way of exiting the app isn't actually closing it.

Also, what happens if you first disable The 
Proxomitron, then exit it?
