Photoshop Elements 5 Task Mgr shows 2 entries

On my XP Lappy, opening PSE 5 starts an entry under "Processes in task Mgr about 30/40000MB as one would expect.
Lower down the processes list another entry is running with the same name, using aprox 720MB.
Closing the programme, the larger usage disappears, but the 720MB one reduces to 680MB, and continues running!
Is this normal?

eedcam; thanks for confirming that it seems to be a normal thing.
I've had so many probs with this software and can't find decent tech help anywhere!
I'd just love for instance to have the "Help" files work!
I've located the folder "Adobe Help Centre (0)" but don't know where to paste it to make it work!

Technotiger; That's interesting, but from the info they give, it only supports upto XP, and thatseems to be OK on my lappy (apart from duplicate instances running posted above)
The help files are not working on my Vista installation!

If you Google the problem re Vista, you will find that you are not alone!! Adobe Help does not appear to be Vista compatible.

Technotiger; that's where the infamous "Patch 502" comes in.
Basically, it just destroys what used to be a passable installation that just had no help files...after, you just have an installation that won't load! lol
