  • 1. Annoying Menu Bar
    Can't get rid of Explorer Menu bar calling itself ckbrshtrprs. It showed up after a Windows update (don't know if they're related). It is related to a "Search the Web" website. I can turn it off but it comes back every time Explorer is opened.
  • 2. IE6 Javascript links do not work
    Hi, I started having this problem consistently a couple of months ago. Anytime I am on a web page and I click on a link that shows "javascript: popup('whatever')" or "javascript:void(0);", etc. down in the address bar when hovering the cursor over the link, IE6 will properly open a new window. However, instead of that link target, what appears in the new window is whatever the first page I accessed when I started the most recent session of IE6 (generally my home page). For instance I click on my Paychex.com employee login page, and up pops MSNBC.com (my home page). Please help. I can post screenshots and logs if needed. I have tried reregistering several of the dlls mentioned in related topics by MS employees, but nothing has changed. Thanks!

IExplore.exe remains in process list even after browser is closed

Postby Harry Matsumoto » Wed, 07 Jan 2004 08:56:43 GMT

I have a problem with Internet Explorer.  Even after I 
close Internet Explorer, IEXPLORE will remain in the 
process list.  I have to do an end process to remove 
IEXPLORE from the process list.  I would appreciate any 
help or suggestions.

Thanks, Harry

First eliminate any scumware.
See
Dealing with Unwanted Spyware, Parasites, Toolbars and Search Engines
 http://www.**--****.com/ 

Note that AdAware and SpyBot S & D will each catch some things the other
won't.  Also, each need to be updated before every use, even when just
downloaded.

If trying everything at that site does not fix the problem please post back
in the same thread.

1.iexplore.exe remains in memory even after closing IE

Hi.

The process iexplore.exe remains in memory, as seen in 
Task Manager, even after closing the IE window. The 
processes go on accumulating and affect my browsing speed 
in any new IE windows. In fact, then some of the 
hyperlinks don't open and cause that window to hang.

Actually a similar behaviour is seen with Adobe Acrobat 
Reader 5 window. The acrord32.exe process remains in 
memory even after closing the Acrobat window.

I'm experiencing this for a few weeks now. It started 
without any apparent change in network settings. I've 
tried enabling and disabling Java console. I couldn't 
find anything relevant on the Microsoft Support site.

Is there any way to see what the residual process is 
doing - whether its connecting to some URL or waiting for 
some OS-level activity to finish.

TIA.

2.iexplore.exe process is not exiting when I close the browser

I have noticed that when I close a browser window, that the process is not 
exiting.  This causes another iexplore.exe process to be launched each time I 
open a browser, and will eventually cause memory errors.  If I open and close 
my browser 10 times, I will have 10 processes still running.  
I am using Explorer 6 SP2.  I am also using the MS Anti-Spyware which has 
detected nothing.  On a suggestion from an IT friend, I downloaded a program 
called a-squared which did find and remove several spyware items.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

3.Iexplore.exe remains in memory after I close the program

I am running Windows XP pro with IE 6.

IE runs fine but the problem I am having is when I close 
it the process remains in memory.  I have to go into task 
manager and manually clear out the process. 

Has anyone experienced this, and does anyone have ideas on 
what might be the cause ?
