TabProcGrowth=1 but still seeing more than 2 iexplore.exe processes on task bar RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We are running IE 8.  We have set the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main “TabProcGrowth” to 1 (dword:00000001).  However, we have noticed that sometimes, even with this setting, there are more than 2 iexplore.exe processes running in the task bar.  IE8 usually freezes and we have issues running certain apps.

    What could cause more than two iexplore.exe sessions if the TabProcGrowth is set to 1?  Could some other registry setting or group policy be overriding this setting?  

    Thanks,

    JIrwin.

  • Hi,

    Please test in no addons mode... reboot your computer first to clear all orphaned IE processes.

  • Hi,

    I suggest you try the following steps:

    1. You can run Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) to troubleshoot the issue.

        1. Open Start Menu, then click all programs, select Accessories, open the  system tools;

        2. Right-click Internet Explorer(No Add-ons), run as Administrator.

    2. Test issue in Clean Boot mode and Safe Mode with networking
