Task does not go away in task bar

Specs: XP Multimedia Ed, Intel
Hi,

On my HP multimedia notebook, running XP multimedia edition, oftentimes when a window is closed, the taskbar still shows the job (i.e does not vanish from the taskbar).
Any idea why this happens ? and what should be done to fix it ?

Thanks,

PS Narayanan

I'm not sure about this one, But check for spyware, malware or virus. The close button should close that would be a program code.
Use Alt-F4 to close. How does a restart work to remove taskbar items?

Scan with http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

If you Alt-tab does the program show?

ALT-TAB does not show the program, neither does Task Manager. I have NAV running - should I still scan for malware ?

psn

Does Task Manager show the process of the program?

I did not check the process option in Task Manager.
