SO MANY IEXPLORE.EXE's running in Task List!

I'm running IE8 v8.0.6001.18702 and when I ended my sessions.  I STILL HAD iexplore.exe running in my task list!  Two of them!  Why?
How can I stop this?

There might be processes using iexplore.exe to get data from the web.
Also, it might be a sign for a virus infection of the computer.

explore.exe is part of the Windows OS. iexplore.exe IS NOT.


Kill Multiple Processes From the Command Line

The first thing you’ll need to do is open up a command prompt, and then use the taskkill command with the following syntax:

    taskkill /F /IM <processname.exe> /T

These parameters will forcibly kill any process matching the name of the executable that you specify. For instance, to kill all iexplore.exe processes, we’d use:

    taskkill /F /IM iexplore.exe
