Have you access to the applet's code?
Maybe the stop()/destroy() methods have not been properly implemented?

If you don't have the source code:

   You can't stop the applet from running, unless it is implemented in the applet. Hence, what you have got is a so called, hostile applet. The basic problem is that the applet is starting one or more threads to run independent of the browser, but when the browser tells that it leaves the HTML page, the applet's threads are not stopped.

If you have the source code:

   Normally, the Stop() method is responsible for stopping running threads. In addition, the applet can have a Start() method which is, in addition, responsible for starting threads when revisiting a page where the applet is loaded. This way the browser doesn't have to load the applet more than once per session.
   Let me have the source code, and I will troubleshoot it.
