Use Clean boot,

Click Start and type in the search box,
msconfig
Click on the suggestion on top or hit the Enter key,
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,

See the links above my signature on how to take and upload screen shots here,
Cheers.

Superfetch always caches the last running program as long as there is free RAM for caching. I have seen up to 6 times IE or other programs in cache. It does not clean up the old ones but goes round robin - first in, first out.

After clean boot issue persists. Unless I close the iexplore processes left behind in Task Manager before reopening IE.

I think you are chasing a red herring. It's not going to hurt your system, it uses no resources other than some otherwise unused RAM. Why are you worried about it.

It's not the processes left behind that I'm worried about. Except that they seem to be key to my problem, the reason I started this thread...Previous tabs not reopening when I restart IE.

Maybe you want to play with those settings:

I might add that I had this same issue since IE10. I've seen it reported in many forums quite often. Was hoping there was a fix by now.

Played with those. I would think it was settings related, the previous tabs would either never reopen or always reopen.
Could it be a coincidence that ending the iexplore processes before reopening IE makes the opening of previous tabs work correctly each and every time?

That would be a strange behavior - but anything is possible. I could imagine that it does not retrieve the last occurance from RAM. But I am only speculating.
