You are correct about settings in the registry but the programs themselves
should have options to stop this behaviour. For example MSN messenger's
default setting is to stay active in the background, but it provides options
to shut it down completely. (messenger is also started again by other
programs, but that's another story).

As for IE I think it is most likely that an addon is keeping it active.

Easy share probably is programmed to stay active after you shut it down ..
look to it's options/preferences if there are any. ( I also wonder if
Easyshare is keeping IE from shutting down completely)
