  1. 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

    :)

    Windows 10 Task Manager "End Task" does not end task.

    Using win10 pro (not so pro) logging off of the pc can force close all running programs, win my show program x still running and option to cancel or continue but either one selected will still log off.

    Also setting steam to not download when in game helps, especially if the games are installed on the OS drive and or the same drive the current game is being played on.

    I have posted in the forums here and through the feedback hub about steam and win10 issues.

    Most of the time it is background microsoft apps-store or updates deciding it is time to run said prossess when the pc is on full throttle.

    When I look at the event viewer logs I see program crashing at the same time the os is doing app-store updates even though the store and OS apps are set to not check or download automaticly.

    This is more likely a scheduled task set by task scheduler that overwrites other settings set by group policies admin templates.

    When I launch the store on all 4 of the pc's I can see for a brief few seconds the apps are queued and starting to download but stop.

    The other issue is that the pc can be on for hours and the background prossess do not trigger but as soon as the system is under full load it decides it is the right time.

    Turning off automatic maintenance, windows updates and antivirus updates can also help.

    On the two desktops that I play just cause 2 and 3, I use evga's precision ocx to control the gpu fan as well as system monitoring software; cpuid's hardware monitor, core temp and speccy.

    What I find by using these programs is that when either steam or steam games crash it is not due to anything related to hardware exceeding system or component temp but software issues.

    Windows 10 Task Manager "End Task" does not end task.

    I'm having issues with Apps not starting up properly - say for example Steam (THIS IS NOT THE ONLY APPLICATION THAT DOES THIS). Running Steam after it stops responding, I'm left with a Steam task still running, taking up 0.1MB of memory and 0% CPU. This
    of course, prevents me from starting a new Steam instance.

    The solution should be to go and kill the process. But since WIndows 10 taskmanager so helpfully omits this command, I must rely on End Task. Of course, End Task does not end the task when I ask it to. End Task doesn't do anything at all. I'm instead left
    with a zombie task that refuses to die. The only solution then becomes restarting the entire computer because a single application is misbehaving.

    On a side note, when this happens with say, accessing a hard drive - attempting to restart the computer causes Windows to be stuck on the blue screen saying "Restarting" for an inordinate (30+ minutes) amount of time. Manually restarting the computer during
    this will cause the hard drive to be inaccessible.

    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.

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