iexplore.exe process is not exiting when I close the browser

I have noticed that when I close a browser window, that the process is not
exiting. This causes another iexplore.exe process to be launched each time I
open a browser, and will eventually cause memory errors. If I open and close
my browser 10 times, I will have 10 processes still running.
I am using Explorer 6 SP2. I am also using the MS Anti-Spyware which has
detected nothing. On a suggestion from an IT friend, I downloaded a program
called a-squared which did find and remove several spyware items.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This is usually caused by malware.
