I have been having some issues with programs logging me out, Qbittorrent, Steam and teamspeak. I open these programs screen will go black and put me back to log in screen no error messages.

I had some crashing issues some time ago due to heat which were resolved, I am thinking maybe messed up some files?.

I had noticed the problem and then performed a driver update, thought it might fix the problem, it did not.

I go to additional drivers and get message: No proprietary drivers are in use.

Shows: nvidea_current as only driver, green light is on.

At bottom message: This driver is activated but not in use.

Qbittorent use to work before over heating and crashing issue, others I installed later, I have no problem playing the game Enemy Territory.
