    This is how UWP Apps work. They don't end when you close them, they suspend.

    They don't use any resources (or very few) when suspended, they only start faster if you subsequently launch the same App

    This is normal behavior.

    @Slartybart: I basically informed the OP of the same facts but he has responded that it is IE11 that is causing him problems. Earlier today I did some tests with IE11 that showed the OP's observations were not normal. I think there is a problem but am not sure what is triggering it. Be glad of your help.

    The only program I didn't disable startup was Dragon NaturallySpeaking. I'm handicapped and I need to use it in order to do anything on my computer. I also didn't disable Norton Security. Other than that I disabled everything.

    Of these two programs I would suspect Dragon NaturallySpeaking may be the culprit. I googled for any info on this and found that it is not fully compatible with IE11. There were some sites that recommended turning off Enable Enhanced Protection Mode in the Advanced tab of IE11 options.

    Unfortunately, I can't turn off Dragon to run tests because if I do I won't be able to use the computer. I did go ahead and turn off the protected mode like you suggested. You are correct in your reply to Slartybart, IE 11 even though the job suspended mode sometimes when I'm using it. Also sometimes I end up with four or five, sometimes even more open processes for iexplore.exe. Sometimes I can keep using IE 11 with one of the processes suspended to begin to do all kinds of strange things and gets very slow.

    I've been running with protected mode turned off and it hasn't made any difference. I still get times when IE 11 processes become suspended. Any more ideas of things to try?

    Maybe a resolution...

    Hello,

    I know this is an old thread and I'm not sure that you ever determined the error or the solution. However, what you are seeing is the by-product of a few interactions within the Windows 10 OS. I experienced these as well until I finally tracked down the "interactions" - specifically some explorer.exe extensions don't behave that well with the Windows 10 explorer, and more importantly (for me anyway) was finding that HyperV - specifically the protections of HyperV for its "protected machines" - was causing an issue.

    I found the following article: http://woshub.com/virtual-secure-mod...10-enterprise/ and even though it states Win10 Enterprise, those Group Policy settings are still there. I turned on Virtualization Based Security and then enabled Credential Guard. Since then, I still have some built in Windows apps go Suspended but none of the applications which I start or use go Suspended anymore.

    I hope this helps.

    JByron, I made the change in your post a couple days ago and haven't had any problems since. Thanks for all the help.
