I am running Win7 64bit on an ASUS P6TD with 12GB of RAM IE 8 (32 bit) was installed by the default install from the Win7 DVD I am having very unusual problems in that every new tab that I open results in a new instance of iexplore.exe *32 as shown by the task manager. Whats is worse is that the instances never close. When I do close (either a tab or the entire IE8 app) the task manager shows that all of the instances stay active in memory. And random occurances of a message box appears that says "A tab has been recovered" Sometimes if I had been viewing a video that I later closed the audio from that video will just start to play. Even when no IE8 window is visable. If I try to force the instances to close by "ending the process in Task Manager, some time the instance closes, sometimes it returns, and sometimes IE8 laock the entire system. I have run Security Essentials and all the malware removal tools all with uptodates current. I have uninstalled IE8 - and reinstalled - only to have the problems continue. It is strange that there is no 64 bit version for Win 7. Is this a new problem - or is there a fix???
