8 steps removal guide

  1. I have followed the 8 steps virus removal guide, very helpful by the way thanks for that. My problem is that iexplore.exe shows up twice in my task manager even though I have just one window (no tabs) open. I read another thread that said that this was normal for IE8, is this true?

    Either way, having done the 8 steps I decided I'd go ahead and post my findings given the Malwarebytes actually found 21 problems, I'd like to make sure there is no more trouble. Thanks in advance for any help given.


    PS My OS is Vista, and I do have IE8

    The following has been found in your Hijack log which needs removal, (other recommendations may be made). As for Internet Explorere v.8 showing up twice-it is normal.

    C:\Program Files\Search Settings\SearchSettings.exe

    R3 - URLSearchHook: SearchSettings Class - {E312764E-7706-43F1-8DAB-FCDD2B1E416D} - C:\Program Files\Search Settings\kb127\SearchSettings.dll

    R3 - URLSearchHook: FCToolbarURLSearchHook Class - {50201617-EE0D-42F2-B229-C137ADA32DD0} - C:\Program Files\Websentials - webs, email, weather, news, radio\Helper.dll
