    On my laptop, runnning Win 7 x64 Enterprise and IE 10 pre release, IE continues to run in the background after closing the program. It will be listed in task manager as a running program, and only after manually closing from task manager, will it no longer be running. I've noticed this with IE version 9 as well, so don't think that it's related to running the pre release version 10.

    Is IE continuing to run in the background by MS design? I thought maybe it was an effort to keep IE in memory for faster access??

    Thanks for any help you can offer.
