Hi
Can anyone advise why, in my task manager, I have 2 processes of IEXPLORE.EXE running.
One has at the moment, with only BleepingComputer open, a memory usage of 12268 and one of 41940.
Is this correct ?

Many Thanks
David Cowling

That's Internet Explorer. How many pages do you have open? Two per chance?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Hi DC3
Many thanks for responding. No only one page open and as I write, iexplore.exe is still showing as opened twice.
Just tested your theory and opened my hotmail account, still two iexplore.exe open, however, the mem usage has gone up to 74896 and 10428.
Not sure if I should risk closing the lesser one i/e 10428.

Regards

IE8 runs TWO iexplore.exe processes from the get go. It's normal.

You're very welcome Posted Image

Also, any new tab open will create another iexplore.exe process.

Just make sure, no iexplore.exe process is running, when your IE is NOT open. If you see any, then your computer is surely infected.
