Toad Connection Window Locks Up Won't Close

Sometimes when I connect to a DB using Toad (v 7.4.0.1) at the logon/login window it will hang/lock-up.  It will connect me to the db and I can click on the sql work area (behind the connection pop-up window) to start doing work, but the connection window just hangs there and won't close.  I can't click the 'x' on the top right of the window and 'cancel' and all other buttons are greyed out.  I can't see any pattern it appears to be random.

Its more than a pain in the butt.  It   In order to open a new connection window I have to close toad I have to ctrl-alt-delete, terminate toad, then reopen toad.  argghh.

a dumb suggestion maybe but worth a try if you checked out everything else - reinstall :)

That's a pretty old version of TOAD. It is now on 9.0.1.

Can you try upgrading?

I had to upgrade in order to fix this problem.  major bummer in terms of cost.  if someone could tell me how to avoid this (w/o upgrade) it would save my company money

I guess if nobody chimes in with a way to avoid the upgrade the points go to lappins.

this was a workaround, but a good workaround.
