2 iexplore.exe in task manager

  1. Hello!
    I have 2 iexplore.exe in my task manager.
    From reading around the net I think this is some kind of virus\malware.
    I ran every test possible (adaware, avast, super ad blocker, a-squared and so on, also in safe mode) and cleaned what it found but still - 2 processes.

    All programs suggest that my system is clean. I feel otherwise. 1 of the processes is always a lot heavier than it should b.

    I would very much appreciate your help.
    Thanks a lot!

    I'm attaching a "hijackthis" log file.

    What version of IE are you using? Is it IE8?

    I am going to give you the benefit of the doubt until I hear from you. The following entry is in the trusted zone:
    O15 - Trusted Zone: http://www.serials.ws

    This is to use for pirated software. IF that is what you are using, we do not provide help.

    Thanks for your reply. Didn't quite understand what you said but I deleted the site from the trusted zone. I am using IE8 - downloaded a few days ago.
    What's wrong?
    Thanks again

    I'm saying you're stealing software by using this site to get the 'keys' to run the software.
    By downloading the serials from a crack site instead of buying software and being given the serial by the company that makes it, means you stealing the software- that's called pirating. We do NOT help people who do this.
