    I am using windows XP with IE 6.0. When shutting down Iexplorer.exe is
    hanging up and not letting the computer shut down. The irony part of this is,
    I do shut everything down on my desktop. There are nothing on the taskbar to
    indicate anything is open. I even did a control, alt & delete to make sure
    everything is shut down and it still does the same thing. I have not added
    any new hardward, or software. I do have windows set for automatic updates.
    Could it be a bad update? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    You're probably infected. Using IE6 is just asking for it. Do virus and
    malware scans and update to IE8.
