  1. Hi ppl...

    First i want to say that my english is poor, but i will try to make u understand what is my dout.

    Well, I have 2 processes of IEXPLORE.EXE in my task manager, but i am not even using the IE. I've tryied AVG Anti-Virus, Spybot, ComboFix!

    Here is my logfile of HJT-> Link!

    Have you restarted the PC since those two IEs appeared ?

    The two IE syndrome is usually caused by one of two things :

    - clicking on the IE icon again after it has already launched

    - an orphaned IE process caused by something only a programmer could explain.

    For the record,your HJT program is out of date,and it should be renamed to

    something other than Hijack This.

    The Techspot spyware thread is HERE if all else fails.

    Yes but Po`Girl, he's now going to think the restart did it and not the above downloads I supplied.

    Here we go

    Thankyou Po`Girl the restart did it !

    No thanks to little ol' me

    Mind you the spyware link and HijackThis log info is important by you

    I just answered the posters query as best I could.

    The most common reason for the two IEs, is as I described.

    Spyware is still a possibilty.

    Thank-you Po`Girl you solved it :)

    No I'm only joking

    But you have probably had this happen to you, without a doubt

    ie the other guy solved it and Po`Girl well you helped a little ! Even though you probably did everything !

    All that matters is that the poster of the thread gets their

    problem sorted,in the fewest posts possible.

    Who sorts it,doesn`t matter. :)
