I am trying to automate Outlook using COM. I am using VB.Net

So I instantiate an outlook object, make it visible, If i quit is using
Outlook.Quit()  function it works, however if i close this Outlook instance manually using the mouse and click on the top right hand side close icon. Outlook looks like it quit, but it hangs around in memory forever.

I can see it in the process list using Ctrl+Alt+Del

How do i fix this ?
