    Internet Explorer running in background?


    Now & again I run CCleaner & as usual it comes up with a list of Temporary files, Chrome cookies & cache, Windows log files etc to be cleaned.
    However, it also lists Internet Explorer cookies & temporary internet files.
    Why is this this since I never use Internet Explorer or indeed Edge?

    :)

    Microsoft Internet Explorer renamed to Windows Internet Explorer ?

    Internet Explorer running in background? wie1.png


    Since version 7 of the world`s most popular web browser - Microsoft Internet Explorer was silently renamed to Windows Internet Explorer.Such a step from Microsoft is not a surprise since Internet Explorer is part of the Windows operation system for a long time.Obviously Microsoft corp. wants to state that Internet Explorer is already considered as a part of Windows and not as an external browser (remember the IE and WMP law issues last year!?).

    Internet Explorer 9 won't run

    That's the exact problem i'm having. I did the first two and nothing happens, but when I try and do the troubleshooting step I don't have the internet explorer performance troubleshooter. Oddly both my x64 systems don't have it but my x86 one does.
