  1. hello, I have attached a hijackthis.txt logfile. Multiple instances of Iexplore.exe open when I click once to open the browser. It had taken over my cpu and I've managed to get it back in usuable condition and can use Firefox for the Internet. however i am used to Iexplore and would like to fix the issue. thanks for any help.

    I did some aggressive registry cleaning of Iexplore and downloaded IE7 and reinstalled. I also found virus in an external hard drive. not sure the file on external drive was the cuprit. anway....it is working now....thankfully I found your removal instructions to follow should this occur again. Thank goodness for this site and the good people who post!
