One instance of IE runs constantly...as long as Windows is being used.

 

When the browser is actually used, there will be two instances or more of IE reflected in Task Manager, with 1 additional process for each IE windows opened.

When you say you are using the 'Google browser' do you mean you are using 'Chrome' as your default browser or is 'Google' your home page, ie the page your default browser opens at ?

 

If you are using Chrome, then IE shouldn't be running and there should be no processes or services running for it when you look at Task Manager. My default browser is Firefox - which I am using at the moment - and I have no IE processes running.

 

If you mean 'Google' is your home page, then you would expect IE to be running if that is your default browser.

Thank you gentlemen - I use Chrome.  I just recently notice IE being the last to close if I do a force shutdown - that was why I

asked.  It isn't a problem, just a new sighting.

 

Happy Fathers Day!

By "force shutdown", do you mean that you are using the power button to shut down this computer?

 

If you are, you should not do this as any files which haven't been properly closed could be corrupted.  If you have been doing this on a regular basis I would suggest running sfc /scannow from the command prompt.


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