Windows 7: Two Explorer.exe running

Ok guys, finally, Got it! I use IDM and it happens when I click the 'Open Folder' option in IDM. But One thing I do not understand that when I closes the window opened by 'Open Folder', the process 'C:\Windows\explorer.exe /factory (75dff2b7-6936-4c06-a8bb-676a7b00b24b) -Embedding' doesn't auto terminate.
Why? Any thoughts are welcome.

Two explorer.exe running

I have a simular problem. Avanquest Fix-it reports explorer.exe contains malicous spyware rapidblaster. Explorer.exe is an intregal part of windows and the correct one is essential. Hope someone knows a solution.

If I go into Tools - Folder options - View tab and tick "Launch folder windows in a seperate process" then when I open a Folder I have two eplorer.exes running in Task Manager.

Unticked there is only one explorer.exe running.

Its partialy solved as why 2 explorer.exe are running but don't know why they don't auto-terminate when their respective folder gets closed.
