    IE10 won't fully close all processes and will cause windows desktop to frez

    All of a sudden IE 10 on Windows 7 32 bit interferes with windows desktop explorer.
    As long as IE 10 is running no problems launching desktop icon programs.
    If I close IE,
    1. the desktop becomes unresponsive can't click on anything, icons unresponsive
    2. If I look at the processes running there are still 2 instances of IE running if I force a close of these processes, then the desktop becomes responsive again
    It seems that IE 10 suddenly won't "fully" close out and it hangs the windows desktop explorer
    I have updated all bios, drivers..... virus check and everything appears okay. But it did install some " critical" windows update over the weekend.
    Any one seen this before?

    IE 10 has been causing some problems with some Win 7 systems. MS is aware of this and is working on solutions. Until that time you might want to disable auto updating of IE (Gear, About Internet Exporer, uncheck update automatically), then roll back to IE 9. CP, Programs and Features, View Installed Updates. You should see IE 10 in this list. Uninstall it. IE 9 will be reinstalled in it's place.

    Some of the problems seem to be from outdated video drivers. Are yours up-to-date?

    Have you tried running IE with addons disabled?
