Ok I have been trying to fix this for the past 2 days and i got sick of it so just decided to come to the experts for help. The problem: i've noticed that there are multiple iexplore.exe processes running in the task manager. Whenever i delete the process, it comes back a few seconds later. Also, while I'm using my default browser Firefox some random ads in the background come up, but only the sound from the ad comes, not a popup or anything. Also, I'm not sure if this is related but shortly after these ads the "wave" meter on the volume settings goes to 0. How do I start the process of fixing this? Thanks in advance for the help.
