Problems closing ie tabs

When I open a new tab from a link, after using it the tab will not close down. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I did not have this problem using XP only after I upgraded to windows 7

Win 7 32 bit or 64 bit? Please fill in your system specs...

Also you mention an upgrade from XP to Win7... how did you accomplish that?

To manually close all of the tabs (including the ones you thought you closed but they didn't actually close) you can go into Task Manager, Processes and look for any iexplore.exe *32 items. End their processes and all of your IE tabs will close.
