Windows 7: Have to turn off OUTLOOK.EXE manually when shutting down PC

Have to turn off OUTLOOK.EXE manually when shutting down PC

As it says on the tin. Every time I try to shut down my PC, Windows asks if it can close off multiple instances of OUTLOOK.EXE for me. I don't know why it does this or why there are multiple instances of Outlook running in the background. Some help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Startup

You may be starting more than one instance while booting. To check what is starting use "power tool". Download zip file here and extract. No install required.

https://code.google.com/p/powertool-...downloads/list

You can get the 32bit or 64bit here.

Once you get power tool started click on the startup tab and check what you are starting.

Hi thanks for the screen shots,
You seem to have 5 open Chrome tabs as well,

You may have done the screen shots which you were still browsing,
Close chrome/ all tabs
Then double check using task manager on if there's still open chrome.exe and outlook.exe Processes,

You also have an open .doc file,
I can see why Paint was open to access the screen shots
In Chrome after double checking,
Change this Advanced setting,

Cheers.

All instances of Chrome.exe were gone when I closed Google Chrome, but OUTLOOK.EXE was still there, even when I closed it. Oh yes, and I unchecked that box for you.

Hi thanks,
Which version of Office do you have installed ?
So no more OneNote.exe and all chrome.exe processes were gone from task manager ?

Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 12.0.6687 SP3

When I close off everything, Chrome is gone, Word is gone, OneNote is gone, except for Outlook.

Go to the Startup section and take some screen shots for a complete list,
Go to the Services section and on the bottom left Check the box to Hide All Microsoft services,
Repeat the screen shots,

Why do I need a cleanboot?
