IE and XP - IE stays running as a Process

I have searched the web and this forum, but no luck to finding an answer to my problem.

Shut down IE (OS is XP), but in the process still shows running in Task Manager.

I can kill the process in Task Manager, but if I forget and want to shut down, I get "End Task" (I have to click OK) questions after I start the "Shut Down".

This can be a real pain if my kids/wife have used IE many times before I perform the shut down.

Thanks for any help you may be able to give me.

There's a fix for this problem, as well as a few other IE issues:
