I've had differrent issues on several comps with CFP's driver not running, more or less related to the case. What I want to stress out is that CFP SHOULD alert its impaired functionality either via tray icon, popup, or balloon popup, not just in the main window!
You are right. But probably you meant CMF
as for M
at the same time you are right again
has similar problem which I raised long ago
When you go through Miscellaneous /Diagnostics more often you'll find that sometimes there IS
actually a problem ... and you CFP offers to fix it after that. That's good but not good enough, because one may have it for several days or more (long session without switching off)
having no idea about it. So I suggested the similar periodical self-checkup and subsequent message/pop-up/balloon/shotgun loud surround sound/anything... to notify the user
