Are you running Win10? Unusual and unexpected application behaviour appears to occur more frequently with Win10. Many commentators have attributed this to the Windows "Fast Startup" mode. I have experienced this many times until I read this article The Pros and Cons of Windows 10’s “Fast Startup” Mode.
Win10 by default doesn't unload certain parts of the OS and some application files when a shutdown is performed, a form of hibernation takes place and this provides for a fast startup. The only way to guarantee that the OS and applications are completely unloaded is to perform a "Restart"
All Win10 PCs that I work on now have "Fast Startup" disabled. While it does make startup noticeably slower, the unusual application behaviours I was previously experiencing seem to have been eliminated, except when Windows has an update pending which only becomes apparent when the Restart is performed (typically because an app is misbehaving)
Regarding uninstalling WSJT-X and JTAlert, that will typically have no effect as configuration files for both are not removed by the uninstall process. Rarely is there a problem with the actual application files.
