If I see that tomcat page on typing localhost:8080 in my browser does that mean that the tomcat server is running.Because I typed it and the process explorer did not show any process by the name of tomcat.And I don't see any startup file in bin for tomcaqt 5.5.Thankyou, regards,

If you see the tomcat welcome page, it's running.

HI Ben,
thanks for the reply.But why then I don't see tomcat in process explorer.That also means that my server is always running even if I stop it.Because it just always keeps me showing that page.And I don't see that window that says that server starting in this many seconds.Thanks alot, regards,

May be you should clear your browsers cookies and temporary files and then type localhosta:8080 and see the effect, after closing tomcat.

When you install tomcat it register a service for itself which is auto start .
so it means that when you start the windows it goes up in background like other services.

Tomcat use java to run not a tomcat.exe ? so you need to check how much java process is in your list.
