If the window is full screen, you can't get out of it and have to sign out of Windows to get the program to stop. Still, it's small potatoes compared to the time you get in game.
Cleaning out the hidden Windows folders is only necessary if you want an absolute clean slate. I have only done it once when the transition to v.0996 (Flashpoint) was done. Otherwise it should be enough to verify files over Steam, disable Steam cloud saves and use the option in the RT installer to remove the folders they recommend. I would also recommend to disable auto-updates in Steam for the game.

Three questions @Darkheart

1. Can it played offline and not use the server for the map?
2. Can it be installed and played with the GOG version?
3. What about the online economy? Is it necessary to play?

As that Nexus F.A.Q doesn't really offer much information.

1. Yes. I think there is even an option for that in the installer.
2. Should be the same procedure as with Steam, so just download the installer. I don't have the GoG version, though.
3. No. And it is disabled for the moment anyway.
