Windows 7,Internet explorer 8 not closing completley and running in the background found by task manager. Cannot debug

    Question

  • After using Ie8 sometimes the prosess iexplore.exe runs in the back ground after i close ie8, and after lots of times opening and closing ie8 there is many iexplore.exe prosess running in the background but not visible on the desktop. A debugger cannot be attached, Only way to close the iexplore.exe prosess is through task manager. my pc is running on offical windows 7 all up todate. All up todate with bitdefender antivirus. This happens to lots of other computers ive looked at all running windows7. A fix would be good because they slow the pc down eventually.

  • The possible cause can be the confliction of other programs. I recommend you perform the following suggestions.

    Suggestion 1: Launch Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) from Start and Search bar to test your issue.

    Suggestion 2: Reset Internet Explorer 8
    =============================
    Note: the following steps will remove all of installed add-ons and reset IE to default settings. You need to reinstall the add-ons after resetting.

    1. Click "Start", type "inetcpl.cpl" (without quotation marks) into “Search” bar and press "Enter" to open the “Internet Options” window.
    2. Switch to the "Advanced" tab.
    3. Click "Reset…" to reset Internet Explorer settings.
    4. Check "Delete personal settings" box and click "Reset" to confirm the operation.
    5. Click "Close" when the resetting process is complete.
    6. Click “Restore advanced settings” button and click “OK”.
    7. Close the Internet Explorer window and restart IE to check the issue.

    Suggestion 3: Test the issue in Clean Boot. You can refer to the KB929135. 


    I hope this would help you.
