It seems to happen after I've viewed a .pdf in IE, but when I close IE acrord32 stays active and shows as 'not responding' slowing the system and sometimes keeping other programs from working properly.

I have noticed that IE hangs around in memory long after I close it, and in many cases multiple instances are running.  I have to terminate these processes with the task manger in WinXP.  I wonder if this is a "feature" of the latest versions.

From my experience, I have found that in all the latest versions.

Even if it usually never causes a problem.
