How to kill console windows left behind by Visual C++ 2008?

I am using Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition (v9.0.21022.8 RTM) running Microsoft .NET (v3.5 SP1). If I exit a application prematurely by using Shift + F5 (stop debugging), the application closes down but the console window remains open. Nothing I can do will close the window down, and there is not even any process listed for it any more in the task manager. The window even stops me from shutting down the computer, and I have to resort to a hard reboot to get rid of it.

Any suggestions what might be causing this and what I can do about it (other than exiting my application cleanly)? Thanks.
