Internet Explorer Not Closing


S

I am having a problem with Internet Explorer 8. I have noticed it
happening when I have been playing cards in Zone.com. I try to close
IE and it does not close. I then get the dialog box that asks what I
want to do and I tell it to close the program. I then noticed that
the computer was running slowly and opened task manager. Internet
Explorer was running four times. I closed them all and CPU usage
dropped to normal (it had been very high). I normally use Firefox
except when I'm in a Microsoft site like zone.com where I have to use
IE, but this is really strange and I have no idea what is happening.
Any thoughts? BTW, I'm behind a router and using up to date security
software.

Firefox has an add-on available to make a tab emulate IE. Perhaps that
will do a better job on the site in question. I don't recall its name,
so you'd have to search.

No wait, it's called IE Tab, but it's not compatible with FF 3.6. Or at
least my copy of it isn't...

It was a problem with the Hearts game at zone.com. Everything is
working today.

It's kind of interesting how the symptoms of various problems keep
pointing the wrong way :)

I'm glad your good detective work solved the problem - and thanks for
letting us know.

The problem came back, so I installed IEtab and that works great. Also
much faster than IE. Thanks for your suggestion.

And thanks for the update.

OT:
I recently had to use a county site to fill in a form, and I couldn't
print it from either Firefox or Internet explorer. More accurately - I
could print it, but all the blanks were ... blank.

I ended up doing screen shots. First I hit Home and grabbed the top of
the document, then scrolled down to get the second half. I was
simultaneously amused and annoyed :)(

Luckily, I was using CutePDF, so I didn't waste any paper.
