Document Explorer wont die ?

Document Explorer wont die ?

If like me you are using a version of Delphi that incorporates MS Document Explorer as the help system host.
Then you might have found that dexplore.exe does not stop running when you close it, or indeed when you close Delphi, I have found this to be particularly noticeable under Vista.
as it stops the computer from shutting down!

Windows 7 seems to be better at forcing it to stop at shutdown but its still running!

I found this Package that forces it to shut when you leave Delphi, Just calls a system KillTask on DExplore
and works, easy to install.
