Windows 7: I Have Too Many Explorer's

13 Apr 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit (OEM) SP1
I Have Too Many Explorer's

I checked the update area today and had a ton of updates to download, something like 17 critical and 3 optional.
So I selected all of them.
Now before the download I had IE8 in 32 bit and 64 bit, the 64 bit wouldn't work on some things, IIRC it may have been flash. So I kept both of them and ended up only using the 32 bit one.
With the download I got IE9 so should have 3 different IE's that i have as a shortcut to.
When I checked those 3 shortcuts they all say IE9???

All those shortcuts are different also,

How to get rid of the extra IE's or maybe it's good to have 3 of them for some reason?

All responses appreciated.

yeah, IE doesnt like people having old versions. I'm afraid it's replaced the two old IE8s and added a completely new IE 9 as well.

Well OK then. I did a search for iexplore.exe and a bunch of them came up, like 6 or so. I'll just leave them alone as IE9 is working good so far.
Thanks all...

Internet Explorer and SysInternals' Process Explorer
(I'm aware of the SysInternals Forum but I can't seem to get a registration e-mail out of it.) IE can take A LOT of cpu. So I have long used Process Explorer to see which web sites are associated with the high-cpu instances of IE. (It's not a perfect technique as it does not identify which site...
