The caching is only for faster loading. The IE is then not fetched from the disk but from RAM. Those will disappear if they age enough and the cache is being reclaimed by newer programs. That happens when the system runs out of empty RAM space for caching.

Makes sense this was a windows 7 basic computer which probably only has 2 gigs of ram :/

Ok, so if the two iexplore processes are left behind (cached) to speed up reopening IE until they time out...why are two more processes being opened when I reopen IE?
Snip from Task Manager.

With No Add-ons, same problem, one tab opens, unless I end the two "cached" iexplore processes before re-opening IE.
