    how to close IE with one click


    hi guys,

    What does Suspended next to IE means in Task Manager? Is IE still open and is this dangerous for virus attacks?

    My F-Secure Antivirus does not work on Win8 and Panda free version also not.

    thanks

    Suspended most likely means that it is cached and not active. For an AV you can use MSE - that works.

    Here we go again ...

    MSE is unnecessary. Defender is built in to Win8 8102 DP and is essentially identical in this iteration.

    I know Mike. You pointed that out several times. But MSE on board may make you feel better - LOL.

    ... that bad thing is that suspended mode still consumes RAM

    The best example that I can give for this new suspended app deal is to think of it like superfetch. When you close the app, it gets suspended, but sits in memory (RAM) to be able to load faster if needed to open/run the app again. If Windows needs to use any of the memory that suspended apps are sitting in like superfetch, then Windows will automatically purge the memory for how much more it needs starting with the oldest app sitting in memory.

    It doesn't hurt anything or use any of the systems resources for an app to sit suspended in memory. The app doesn't run in the background while suspended, it's closed and on standby instead now.

    Hope this helps to clear up what "suspended" means in Windows 8 better.

    Indeed, Shawn, I run AutoCad 2012, PhotoShop CS5 and many Office programs regularly, especially Outlook with a 5 GB PST file, (daily) on Win7, and my boot time is way out there (like 5 minutes plus) because of Superfetch.

    Still, each of those programs starts rather quickly due to that implementation.

    Great analogy, Shawn, thanks.

    Thanks Mike. It's something that will take some getting use to.

    I think a lot of those design decisions they made for Win8 have to be seen with the portable devices in mind. Those toys do not have the muscle of most modern PCs (at least not yet) and strategies are required to keep them up and running with a minimal delay.

    The toy users would probably be frustrated a lot faster than the PC users if the device takes ages to pick up again.
