    Outlook closed but still listed in Task Manager (Outlook 2000 sp-3)

    Occasionally we have the situation where a user closes Outlook but if you look on the Processes tab of Task Manager it still shows up. Any idea why and how to make it not? Thanks

    It does take some time to really close out completely, maybe a minute or two. But then there also is the possibility that another process is keeping it open. I haven't tried to track these down, but possible culprits might include applications in which the user used File>Send to fire off a message in Outlook.

    Another thing that will keep it running, is if one tries to open Outlook when it is already running, so you will have two copies or more running.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
