Solution: IE (internet explorer) processes not closing down

Sometimes when you close a tab or IE itself it doesnt always shut down the corresponding process:
1. Open regedit
2. navigate to HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
3. Either create a dword entry called TabShutdownDelay or if its already there edit it (wasnt there on mine)
4. Enter the value (in seconds) you want for how long it takes to shut down the process (0 will force the process to close immediately)

pls do same to 2 more registry keys as below:

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main

HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main

  1. Excellent it worked for me. But I want to know are there any impacts to IE or other applications if we change the value of the DWORD?
