    When I close an internet explorer window the iexplore.exe process does not end in the Task Manager. Every time I open a new IE 7.0 window a new iexplore.exe process launches. Soon my is PC bogged down and unresponsive as the memory gets sucked up with these ghost processes. Any ideas? The only thing I can do now is manually close each process or reboot.

    Your amount of running processes is mind-boggling to me.
