Hi, uhh, signed up here to get some help, because, well, I can't find a solution anywhere else. Anyways, basically, whenever I use iexplore.exe (internet explorer 6 with SP2), and then close, I always seem to still have an iexplore.exe process running, which normally goes between 25,400k-25,600k. Now, I use msn and yahoo messengers, as well as AVG virus checker (7.5.472 version, 269.9.4/860 virus base). It's never done this before and just started doing it about 3 days ago. Can anyone help me stop this phantom iexplore.exe process, and also, find out why the hell it's doing it, and what's doing it, in the first place? Any help would be immensely appreciated. Thanks a ton, - Dwaggie EDIT: Made a mistake in the title of this thread. Should say process - it only ever loads one additional iexplore.exe process.
