Game Task still open after closing the Game

Dear @bastecklein,

I am playing MyColony via Steam on a Win 10 Computer.
I am not completely sure but I think after 0.90 came out, the game is not closing correctly/completely.
When I close the game the "MyColony" task is still in the TaskManager and using arrond 200 MB of ram.
If I decide to open it up and start playing again, I get an notification from Steam saying:
While updating MyColony an error occured ( Application is running) : 9916

That means I can only start MyColony correctly once after starting my Pc. Whenever I want to open it up again I have to go into the Task Manager first and end the Task manually. After that I can start MC again.

I was wondering if this is a mistake on my side, or if it is a bug in the program.

I noticed that today too. I had a lot of RAM taken so I opened the task manager and I saw 4 instances of My Colony running (I had launched 4 of them) even though I had closed all the My Colony windows I could. 4 ''ghost'' instances were taking up something like 1GB of RAM.

Now in 0.92 I can not open the game at all (Steam)

Steam- Error
Unable to Start Process of MyColony :
"Access Denied" (0x5)

This might be related to my virus protection that declares the Mycolony.exe as infested by a "FileRepMalware"...

I have the same issue.

MyColony windows 0.98.0 64bit is running on a Win10 64 bit system.

When I start the game, it looks like this in the process explorer:

Then I stop it and one process stay there:
With version 0.99.0 64 Bit on Windows 10 64Bit the same
