Hi everybody, if you could help me, I would like to add a command button on a userform that will close all instances of Internet Explorer with out close the user form. I tryed to search for the answer here and in google but I can not find it. I had it once a long time ago but lost it. If anybody could help, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

You could use something like this:
Sub FindAndTerminate(ByVal strProcName As String)
Dim objWMIService, objProcess, colProcess
Dim strComputer, strList
strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
& "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" _
& strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colProcess = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
("Select * from Win32_Process Where Name = '" & strProcName & "'")
If colProcess.Count > 0 Then
For Each objProcess In colProcess
Next objProcess
End If
End Sub

just pass "IExplore.exe" as the argument.

Put that code into a normal module in your project, then in the Click event of your button, you would just use:
findandterminate "IExplore.exe"
