Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Foobar 1.4.5 "not responding" after quitting

I don't see any unwanted dlls and since it happens with a clean install the regular thread list won't be enough to debug this.
Can you provide a memory dump of the frozen process so Peter can take a look?

I have traced the problem specifically to component foo_upnp
I get the same "not responding" behavior when I attempt to stop the renderer or server 
I have foobar2000 1.4.5 and foo_upnp 0.99.49

I can confirm that it is foo_upnp. Sadly the component appears to be abandoned, there's not much that can be done about this.

There's gotta be another factor at play here.

I have the same versions FB2k/foo_unpnp and can start/stop both server and renderer without the 'not responding' problem.
I do however run Foobar2000 in portable mode.

It also depends on which UPnP devices exist on your local network.

Thank you for the analysis and confirmation.

Question: If foo_upnp is abandoned, is there another way that Foobar2000 supports the remote UPNP server BubbleUPNP?

I solved my problem. It was that the UPnP component has a "Media Renderer" service that took a very long time to shutdown.
I opened Preferences : Tools : UPn: : Server : Basic settings
Clicked "Stop server" for Media Renderer
Went and had a cup of coffee.
Eventually, the media renderer server stopped. After that, leaving it stopped, I have no problem exiting from foobar2000.
