Windows 7: Help, multiple explorer.exe's staying open.

30 Jul 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit (Full)

Well perhaps to explain.

What I am looking for is the "solution".

In other words, if this is not how it works for other that again visa-vie there is a problem on my machine that at least I might hope for, is correctable.

Basically and I mean this by no offense, but what you want me to do is more considered "a work around" and not the a solution to the problem.

And as well is a work around that includes actually more time consuming and troublesome steps.

So again not offense Pete but that is not what I'm looking for here.

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

Example of what happens when people take my advice: Windows Explorer - .wav and .mp3 file display options
Took a minute to fix.

I'm going to go ahead a stop paying attention to this thread now. Bye.

I believe I’ve run into a bug with Windows Explorer, however, it could possibly be with Word 2010. If it’s not a bug, and can be “fixed” by your helping me, that would be wonderful! (I use Windows 7 Professional, 64-bit.) This is what does work just fine: From Word, I open a file, then open...

When I try to open my printers "properties" the window closes as soon as it opens, we're talking micro-seconds. I have uninstalled and reloaded several times to no avail. (I just started using windows 7 and am not liking it much, just one issue after another) Anyway, I am trying to get my HP...

IE8: Multiple internet explorer processes active with one browser open
Sometimes I will have 4-5 browsers open at once. I will then close all except one of them. When I go into task manager, Processes, there will still be 4-6 "iexplorer.exe" processes open. I don't want this. Why do they remain open after closing the browsers? Is there a fix for this?
