I'm trying to help out a friend who is having a problem with his work computer using IE 6 with Windows 2000. He says his computer has been slowing down through out the day to the point is finally just freezes, I noticed that after he was using IE to browse the internet and closing the window and look at the processes in the Windows Task Manager, not only is a process still running for each window he had open, but they're still using a bunch of memory.
Once I close them via Task Manager his computer releases the resources and starts working fine, until the problem repeats over the day.
I've scanned for viruses and spy ware and it’s supposedly clean.
Anyone have a solution or a direction to head?
