Each time I shut down my computer I noticed on the task manager that there are at least 5 ie
running.
I have investigated but cannot find source of this.
Any ideas.(winxp, ie7 running)

Running IE7 with several tabs open only shows one instance of IE here. Have you installed and scanned with anti-spyware software? Updated your anti-virus software and scanned with that too?

Open IE7, go to Tools > Internet Options > General Tab
down near the bottom of this page is
'Tabs - Change how webpages are displayed in tabs' click on the box 'Settings'
and in the next pop up box 'Tabbed browsing settings' near the bottom under 'Open links from other programs in: make sure that there is NO green dot in 'A new window'

click on OK

(I have a green dot in 'A new tab in the current window' which gives me one instance of IE open with tabs opening up for the links I click on for other webpages)
