IE promptly disappears from task manager here when I close it ...
Maybe there is an IE addon staying active and connected after IE is closed
... might it even be easyshare? It probably works in the background connected
to Kodak .. there might be a setting in easyshare to stop that behaviour.
First thing to try is open IE without addons .. and see how that works ..I
suspect it will behave correctly by disappearing from task manager when you
Look through your IE addons and disable or remove them.
