Really getting irritated here... the little "fix" isn't working my stuff never maximizes or even gives the option to maximize. They ar SLOW about fixing the problem...on purpose? Perhaps, but I still refuse to download ARC just to find out.
I downloaded and installed Arc a while ago and found this out.
If you start a game through Arc, you cannot close the program while that game is running.
I bit the bullet and tried the ARC crap. What he said is true. You cannot disable ARC when running one of its games.
Additionally, closing the game down does not turn off ARC. You have to go to your system tray, right click the ARC icon, and manually choose to exit the process. Otherwise, it keeps running in the background even after you've exited the associated game.
