I installed new version and seems everything is working ok now.
Thanks for the feedback. I found that it is a windows 10 issue (Windows 10 Home 22H2). With the 220.127.116.11 version of Express I had to go to Win 10 All Settings, Apps, Startup and change the setting of Garmin Express from 'on' to 'off'. This was not necessary on the previous version of Express, as its own setting (untick "Alwas keep Garmin Express running in the background") did the trick without the need for drilling into Windows 10 settings.
