  4. Is this issue related only to version 8_ ? [[ As for example, past versions (eg version 7_) are not affected. ]]


I’ve tested with version <> and it seems like this issue is a duplicate of Bug 1140. Apparently, ‘Task Manager’ was not disabled (real machine is not affected).
You should also note that ‘Task Manager’ was actually launched. (not disabled)

I will work to re-test to verify the case, thank you


I’ll wait for your response on this one.



If you don’t mind since this has been waiting a while I will move to incomplete pending a further update.

If you update it I can move back here or forward for processing.

Kind regards
