    Whenever I close Outlook, Outlook.exe remains as a running process.

    If I open and close it 5 times, there will be 5 Outlook.exe running that I have to end.

    What is up w/ this? How can I fix it?

    I also noticed that I have 5 svchost.exe running. 3 under system, 1 under local service, 1 under network service. Are the 3 under system normal?

    Thanks!

    This is a fairly common issue that many people over the years have experienced since Outlook 97. It typically occurs when someone has an add-in or something tying into Outlook that doesn't release properly. Examples can be found in the KB articles below.

    OLK2k - http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;196366 or http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;262405

    You can hunt for the offending software.. or if all else fails, try the handy-dandy Outlook Shutdown add-in found here:
