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!

the multiple svchost.exe's are normal...i'm not sure how to go about fixing your outlook problem though.

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.

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