This is an annoyance to say the least. Every time I end VS2005 or even EXCEL from Office 2007 I have to go into the task manager and kill the processes. If I don’t they pile up. I have had over 8 devene.exe and EXCEL.exe processes running without the application running. I am offering 500 points to anyone who can help me with this annoyance. Though I have a work around I am plagued with killing the task each time before I launch another instance.
