    Hi  jimolie1018,

    Thank you for posting.

    Please make sure to click the "Exit TeamViewer" when you close TeamViewer so that you will not receive the message.

    There are two ways to finish TeamViewer.

    (1) You can click "Connection" on the left top and click "Exit TeamViewer"

    (2) You can also click "Exit TeamViewer"  by making a right-click on the tray icon.

     Hope this information will be helpful for you.

    Best regards,
