I'm having a bit of a strange issue;

Quite a few processes aren't closing when I close their applications.

I close the window or shut it down, yet when I check task manager the process lingers, and causes the program to malfunction when I start it again.

I have to exit the process and restart it to get it going properly.

They seem to be mainly processes with high memory usage:
outlook.exe
firefox.exe
hl2.exe (CS: Source)

My PC is a Quad Core with 4GB of RAM, 750 GB hard-drive etc, Windows XP...

Got any ideas?
