    Closed programs won't quit

    I normally open Word or Access2000 by double-clicking on a .doc or .mdb file. Since "upgrading" from Win98SE to WinMe, that only works once. If I close the application and double-click another file later nothing happens. I found that after closing these application as usual, they disappear from screen and taskbar . . . but they still appear in task manager. I can launch another instance of the program itself and then bring up a file from File/Open, but as long as the first instance is still in task manager, clicking an affiliated file has no effect.
    After I close the application in task manager (which generally requires three attempts), I can again open a file in its application by clicking on the file.
    Why don't the programs quit entirely? And how can I correct this behavior?
    BTW, this problem does not arise with Excel, only with Word and Access.
