So I've been looking around for a way to destroy this, or rather just make it stop. I get constant clicking [as if you just clicked a link] and random audio adds will play and/or adds will pop up from time to time. I do not use Internet Explorer, thus why I don't understand why this should even be running. I am currently using a Dell XPS 1710 laptop, running Windows XP and I use Firefox as my browser of choice. Recently I have had to do a system restore to avoid the 2012 AntiVirus nonsense that is actually a virus. That problem has not cropped up again, but this one with the iexplore.exe is an issue. I have looked over several forum threads and posts, but I am hesitant to do anything till I can talk with someone a bit more knowledgeable because it seems each reply is based specifically to the poster's computer stats. That being said, here are the only things I've done thus far to combat the problem: - Run MalwareBytes - End Process [and when multiple iexplore.exe pop up I use End Process Tree] to kill them all, but within 5 seconds they respawn. Normally I see about 4-6 of these some under System some under WinUser, more often than not the majority are under System. I hope this is enough information to go on and would greatly appreciate any assistance possible.
