Application Processes Linger After Programs are Closed and User Ends Terminal Server Session

Application processes like MS Word, IE and MS Excel continue to linger in task manager after the user has logged off the TS session.

I am running User Profile Hive Cleanup Service v1.6d.  The event view shows it running successfully.  

Any clues?
Thx, matt

Hi there!
So for some reason certain user processes don't want to close when the user logs out? There could be several reasons but I'm sure you're not interested in those... :)
What you can do is add a GPO to your terminal server that will run a Logout Script. The script only needs one line:
TASKKILL.EXE /F /FI "USERNAME eq %USERNAME%"
This will make sure no processes started by that user will survive his logging out.

Duh...
How sweet it is, simplicity that is.

I am going to go aheah and create the GPO.  One thing though I would like to know the possible reasons for the hang ups.  Incase it might be a systemic problem.

Thanks again,
matt
