Flex- IE still runs even if I close IE

  When I open adobe flex 3.0 script using IE, IE doesn't die even if I close the IE using File->Close option.

Do I need to do any extra handling of flex? do I need to gracefully unload flex when browser closes?

    You shouldn't need to do anything in order to close the browser window.  The only thing I can think of is that the flex app is doing something intensive which is forcing the IE window to not respond.  If IE is not responding, it wont process it's message queue, and so clicking close wont work.

    When your application is open, open up task manager and have a look at what resources IE is using.

    when I close the IE window, window is closed but IE process still seen in task manager and All the resources seem not changing...
    This always happens when I click on the flex app to open another flex app on another IE window and close both windows. However when I close first winow w/o opening another window then I don't get this problem everytime.
