Windows will not let applications close normally

Think about when you are trying close an application which has open files that need to be closed, like a word processor. The first thing the application will do is put up a dialog box so you can close those files. This is great except for Windows, the forever bad sport who is unable to be a team player, covers up that dialog box with its own saying that the first application is not working and needs to closed. Of course you already know this you were trying to close that application. So you have to get rid of the annoying Windows dialog box which has once again interrupted your work. Then as if Windows had not behaved badly enough, it puts up yet another dialog box wanting to send an email saying that the original application closed abnormally. This is especially annoying since it would have been OK if Windows would of just left it alone. So Windows causes your application to crash and then has the temerity to claim the application failed and it is just trying to save your computer.
