Strange effect with Scheduled task

I have set a scheduled task to take a snapshot when Internet Explorer (iexplore.exe) is started.

EVERY time I start IE there are TWO snapshots taken, about 10 seconds apart.
Sometimes (but NOT always) another snapshot also happens when I open a new tab.

This does not happen with Firefox or any other program.

I am using IE8 on a Windows XP SP3 machine and CTM 2.9 Beta.

Any explanation?

Hello gsr,

this is not a bug in CTM - it’s a feature in IE8 ;). On startup, IE8 creates at least 2 processes, which may multiply by opening additional tabs. An explanation/illustration of this behavior can be found here:

Thanks for the explanation, you are correct.
Today I checked in Task Manager and found 4 IE processes, whilst I had 5 tabs open!
