Basically I've seen a post or two that have similar problems to this, but I'm going to fire away anyway because I still havent been able to completely cure it. At the bottom you will see the three requested logs from the 8 step method. What this problem consists of is a popup that doesn't necessarily popup but that minimizes anything you're doing (word, games, music, etc), and will run a process under "SYSTEM" called "iexplorer.exe" At times when this problem is peaked there are 3-4 "iexplorer.exe" system applications running in the background, with zero iexplorer windows up (I use firefox anyway!!). Now, it's important to note that when I'm not doing anything on my computer, neither is it, but it's often when I'm on the internet or playing a game that It will minimize me and pop one up. Before I used the 8 step method it used to try to install "antivirus 2009", a known virus, and popup random other windows like "gladius". I thought it was cured after the last scan, but as I was checking my hockey pool I got minimized and saw an iexplorer.exe system application!! I feel like it's almost gone, but hopefully you guys can help me completely destroy it. When the problem was very bad before the 8 step thing, I wasn't even able to use facebook and my entire computer was heavily bogged, saying I had not enough virtual memory, etc, but it ran MUCH faster after the spyware scan etc. Here are the logs, any help would be much appreciated!!
