Currently using Windows 7 Pro, When I try to close out of internet explorer, hit the red X at top of page.  For page to go off is 8 seconds.  This has just started in the past couple of days.

Is the exit time the same when you hit file/close?

The issue might be that it takes the system a while to unload all the add-ons it loaded up while browsing.

Get process explorer from sysinternals.com (Now Microsoft) and see what is it doing.
Prior to existing also check how much memory the iexplore process holds.

Have you upgraded or added any IE plugins/add-ons recently?
Have a look in Tools - Manage Add-Ons and disable anything you don't need.  Ensure others that you do use are up-to-date - esp Flash Player.
You could always use the Reset IE Settings feature (Advanced tab of IE Settings) but it's a bit drastic and you'd have to start adding things back in afterwards.

The user has Windows 7 so IE8 is built-in - you can't put IE7 on.  The reset IE settings button will usually fix most problems.  And if not, I'd be then running
