    Google Drive crash on shutdown

    Hi All.

    I recently installed Google Drive and I am getting a popup message on shutdown.

    Has anyone else seen this? Is there a fix?

    BTW there is nothing in the event log.

    Win8 x64 running in VBox under Win7 x64.

    The solution seems to be to not start automatically but to schedule a task to start it in Win7 compatibility mode. Ho Hum, SkyDrive works perfectly.
