Iexplore.exe is always running in the background, usually at least twice

  1. When I look in task manager there is always iexplore.exe running twice at least, using 30,000k or more memory. Sometimes it will open and take me to adult friend finder and casio sites, and every time I use end task to close it, then it opens up in the background right away again.

    When it does start opening pages it opens several of them in a few mins. I only ever use firefox for browsing, I only use explorer to do windows updates and thats it.

    I have tried scanning with avast! AV, and super anti spyware, but nothing is found. I have attached a hijackthis log file in .txt format.

    Can anyone help?
