CFileDialog Thread

I am using performance monitor to watch my applications thread count and I have noticed something strange:

When I create a CFileDialog object a new thread is spawned, but when this object is destroyed the thread stays.  At first I created the object on the stack, then switched to the heap so I could handle (de)allocation manually.  Neither approach seem to make a difference.

Any ideas as to why this is happening?

Since I have no handle to the thread, how can I kill it?

It sounds strange, but it could explain something... I have noticed that the first time I bring up an OpenFile dialog, the system takes a while, but that subsequent times, it goes faster.  Perhaps the system is keeping that thread alive and reusing it on subsequent calls.

Does another thread get created if you use CFileDialog again?

It is rather a question, not an answer, but which performance monitor are you using ? I am looking for one too.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Subsequent calls do not create additional threads, no.

The viewer being used is perfmon.exe

<<dont happern on any of my applications that use a CFileDialog, i just checked two>>

Perhaps this is just an NT thing? What O/S are you on?

I could imagine that the system creates a thread that does a 'FindFirstChangeNotification()' to update the CFileDialog dynamically, but that's just a guess also...

If my theory is correct, the only way to know might be to open an app that uses CFileDialog directly after booting the system.
