windows / iexplore.exe

File Name: iexplore.exe
Status: windows should not be running at startup. It is likely a virus, spyware, trojan, or some other sort of malicious program. Use a virus scanner, and/or spyware removal tool to remove it.
Additional Info: Added by the RBOT-UM WORM! Note - this is not the legitimate Internet Explorer (iexplore.exe) process, which is always located in the Program FilesInternet Explorer folder and should not normally figure in Msconfig/Startup unless you add it manually! This file is located in the System (9x/Me) or System32 (NT/2K/XP) folder
