Iexplore.exe does not close.

by dserban1 / October 24, 2005 1:38 AM PDT

Every instance of iexplore.exe opened, stays open until I have to go to the task manager and manually close it. This creates problems with the memory and resources.

I have Win XP SP2.

Any ideas why is doing this and how I can fix it?

Does the task manager say it is "running" or "not responding". This would make a difference in our answers. Meanwhile do a System Restore back to when it was working OK. Let us know...

and life goes on...

In reply to: Question..

therefore does not say if it is responding or not.

As far as to go to another restore point, frankly i don't know when this situation first happened.

the computer is three weeks old so I imagine it has to do with the programs i installed.

3 weeks old? Make it their problem?

This is the perfect time to see if that support line is worth it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
