I have a Dell pc running Windows 7 and Waterfox (Mozilla's 64 bit version of Firefox) is my web browser. I also use CCleaner to clean up my pc generally after I am done using it or I close out my email client, Thunderbird, and Waterfox. When I clean up CCleaner shows that IE has some cookies and temp files that were deleted. Why would anything having to do with IE be downloading onto my pc if I am not actively using it? I've set default programs for HTML, XML and the like to use Waterfox and I don't use Windows Live Mail although it is on my system so what is IE doing? It doesn't present a problem but if IE is using up resources even though it should be dormant I would like to know how to shut that down. Are some of the svhosts that are running doing this? Cause I can't id them as pertinent to IE using ProcessExplorer64, or am I just missing something? Thanks in advance for any help.
