When developing a recent project, I noticed that when I close the application, the VB IDE still shows that the program is running. Is this a bug in VB6, or is my application still running even after I close it?

Make sure you have unloaded all forms that the main form has loaded.  You can do this in the main form's Unload event:

Private Sub Form_Unload(Cancel As Integer)
    Dim frm As Form
    For Each frm In Forms
        If Not frm Is Me Then
            Unload frm
            Set frm = Nothing
        End If
    Next
End Sub

Also make sure to set all objects you created to nothing.
