Well duh. All programs continue to grow in memory size (when they are doing different, non-regular operations). When you close Internet Explorer obviously it disappears, IEXPLORER.EXE IS Internet Explorer.

Also, I recommend you download Mozilla Firefox, it's so much more efficient and safer. Honestly, you should.

Actually most times it does not disappear just runs in the background its microsofts way of speeding the program up but just slows the computer down
Have I been helpful? Consider giving me a Kudos

Really? I never heard of that, what is that, a Vista feature. I never really care about my Windows computers, they're just used to play video games and read crap. I could care less what happens to them, haven't been updated since I installed Windows over it last (whatever is on the CD, is what it gets).

the memory leak issue is AFAIK still unresolved in firefox, so will be just as bad if not worse.

As for everything else, it's still vastly superior to IE.

Use it long enough and you can never go back...
