    Did you fix it, wainuitech?
    Nope, cant take credit for that one Cant test either as the computer I used is no longer here. But I'll fire up another fresh install and see what happens.

    Are you using WhatsApp Web or WhatsApp for Windows?

    What's your Windows version?

    OK. wainuitech, I discovered something may be of interest to you:

    I can launch WhatsApp without problem after I turned ON my PC; BUT,

    .. if I close WhatsApp and wish to open it again, it refuses to open (nothing happens when I click on the icon).

    I will need to restart my PC then only it opens OK..

    Any explanation to the above?

    It either is or thinks it is already open. Restarting closes it properly so it can be reopened from scratch.
