  1. Hello,

    I got on a kick to clean up the 2 pcs in the house. When I got to one of them I noticed that taskmanager showed multiple iexplore.exe processes running without me even having IE open. When closed they would simply appear again within seconds.

    I searched and found others with this problem...but thier solutions were always different. I also did the 8 step process on this site. It rid the pc of some issues, but not this one.

    Attatched I have the SAS,MBAM, and HJT logs. Thanks for anyone that can help!

    It probably needs Antivirus installed. I recommend Avira free Antivirus (always)
    Also Spybots Search & Destroy can be uninstalled

    I'd suggest installing then running a full scan with Avira
    And then possibly supplying the logs again, unless it's all fixed after that

    Hey thanks! Avira scanned out some additional items and after a reboot the problem is gone.
