Trying to Reset IE10, getting message

I'm trying to reset IE10 back to default settings as I just re-installed it on my computer and when I do it it tells me to close any open programs, why do I have to do this for, I would much rather keep doing what I'm doing and just close Internet Explorer to do it please help, and I also downloaded and installed it from Windows website
