    IE task does not end completely and I have to use task manager to end


    When I use Internet Explorer 11 on my Win10 x64 computer (with latest updates) after a few days (or internet sessions) I find IE is unresponsive (no new webpages will open) then I go to Task Manager and I see about 10 or 12 instances of "Internet Explorer" running with an equal number of "Internet Explorer (32 bit)" running. I then select one IE and click on "end task". I do this 10 or 12 times until all instances are gone. Then I can restart IE again and it runs fine, for a while but continues to load up on IE. I have to go into Task Manager every couple of days and clear out the IE tasks, depending on how much I use IE.

    What can I do to figure out what is causing IE to not end/close fully?

    Thanks

    There could be a lot reasons, it could be caused by an updater, security software or something else.

    I would start by cleaning IE's cache and generally Windows, you can try CCleaner.

    Until you figure it out, you can use this to kill all IE process at once.

    Could it be the problem with one of your add on? Try to unchecked all third party browser extension.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I'll disable some of the add-ons from starting with Windows and see if that helps.
