Ghost IEXPLORE.EXE processes



Like Mark in an earlier posting I am finding frequent occasions when I
shut down MIE 6 and find the process still running in the Task Manager.
I once had 8 running which used most of my system resources. I run
AdAware, SpyBot, and CWShredder and am clean except for tracking
cookies of low risk. I have edited my HOSTS file. I think the
problem is elsewhere, but I know not where. Any suggestions would
be most appreciated.
