Task manager Processes stay running
I have a question about programs staying in the Task Manager Processes after
they have been closed out.

I know that I can right click and end processes manually and have as few
running as possible during startup via MSCONFIG.

The scenario I'm referring to is for example: I open Internet Explorer,
surf the web, & close out via the X. The iexplore.exe keeps running (not
using CPU resources just memory) after it has been closed out. The same
thing happens when I used Kodak Easy Share. Does anyone know how to stop the
programs when they have been closed out? Some programs are completely
removed from the Task Manager Processes when I end them and others are not.
Is this a registry setup item?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Task manager Processes stay running
I believe you are a bit confused. When you start Internet Explorer it is
loaded into memory. Merely stopping it does NOT
unload it from memory.

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
close IE.

Look through your IE addons and disable or remove them.

.. or even go nuclear ) .. reset IE back to default everything: Tools>
Internet options > Advanced > Reset > apply > OK

Re: Task manager Processes stay running
You are correct, they both disappear.

Re: Task manager Processes stay running
Unknown and 123Jim,
The iexplore is not in Applications. It's in processes. It cannot be
Easyshare. Easyshare and IE do not play well together. I have to shut down
Easyshare in the processes tab so IE works correctly. There are other
programs that do this to that is why I would like to figure out why some
close out completely and others do not.

There are a probably a numberof programs that when you close them do not
dissapear from task manager for legitimate reasons .. they are busy .( this
is what Unknown was hinting at I think). for example I often find Firefox
busy cleaning up before it disappears in task manager .. I have too many
addons .. at least one of which does some cleaning after I close Firefox. It
does not stay busy for long enough to be a problem.

I wonder if your computer is generally slow .. that would increase the time
it takes for programs to leave task manager.

Re: Task manager Processes stay running
123Jim,
The processes stay until I reboot or manualy end them. Some do some don't
that's why I was thinking it was a registry setup. I don't hardly know
anything about the registry, except that it enables you to turn on or turn
off various settings of a program.

Re: Task manager Processes stay running
It is not a registry setting. The memory cannot be released which would
allow it to be cleared in processes
until no other program has any hook on it.
