Cleanning up after Excel Object

hi Experts

I have the below code in Access, and running it once works, but not repeatedly.  I hav also noticed that under Task Manager, when running this code my number of proccess go up by 4, but go down only by 3, leaving EXCEL.EXE *32 listed.

I'm setting my 2 excel objects to nothing, why it isn't cleanning up?

    Dim strFilePath As String
    Dim intRowCount, intRow As Integer
    Dim intColCount, intCol As Integer
    Dim objXL As Excel.Application
    Dim objSheet As Excel.Worksheet
    
    Dim fso
    
    Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    
    strFilePath = Environ("userProfile") & "\Desktop\SalesByProduct.xls"
    If fso.FileExists(strFilePath) Then Kill strFilePath
    
    Set fso = Nothing
    
    DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel8, "qryProdTotals", strFilePath, True
    
    Set objXL = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
    objXL.Workbooks.Open strFilePath
    Set objSheet = objXL.ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("qryProdTotals")
    
    intRowCount = objSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count
    intColCount = objSheet.UsedRange.Columns.Count
    
    objSheet.Cells(intRowCount + 2, 1).Select
    With objXL.ActiveCell
        .Value = "T O T A L S :"
        .Font.Bold = True
        .Interior.ColorIndex = 16
    End With
    
    For intCol = 2 To intColCount
    
        objSheet.Cells(intRowCount + 2, intCol).Select
        With objXL.ActiveCell
            .Value = objXL.WorksheetFunction.Sum(Range(Cells(2, intCol), Cells(intRowCount, intCol)))
            .Font.Bold = True
            .Interior.ColorIndex = 16
        End With
    
    Next
    
    'Hilight Row1
    
    
    'Format col2...colMax, Row...rowMax+2
    
    objXL.ActiveWorkbook.Save
    objXL.Quit
    
    Set objSheet = Nothing
    Set objXL = Nothing
    MsgBox "Report Exported to " & strFilePath
    

'***Export to Excel END***

I've tested it in Windows 7 32 bit, Access 2010 and all is working without problems. Excel is  unloaded. Only one comment: you have late binding of Excel an it will be better to declare your variables as:
    Dim objXL As Object
    Dim objSheet As Object
In thhis case you will need no reference to Excel library.
