    I need your help, I also have 2 iexplore.exe on my task manager, tried your response to Vudew, but it didn't work, I'm pretty sure that each problem is different. Please guide me, onto what I need to do. Here I attached my hjt log file.
    Thanks for the help in advance.

    is this thread still active?

    There are so many others having the same problem. It's like 2 IEXPLORER.EXE processes, one of them is bigger than the other one in terms of memory, and whenever you terminate each one, they keep coming back instantly!

    It's very annoying, it never goes away!
