I first noticed AVG giving me some warnings about excessive memory usage by IE, but didn't really pay much attention since I was watching streaming video with several tabs open, so I thought maybe that was the problem. Then I noticed that Google searches were being redirected, so I ran a full scan with AVG and Malwarebytes and deleted the several trojans that they found. I then noticed that even when I had not started IE that there were at least two and sometimes more processes running when I looked at Task Manager. One of the processes shows "-noframemerging -private -Embedding" in the command line in Task Manager, and the other usually shows SCODEF:xxxx CREDAT:xxxxxx (different numbers each time). When I tried to download tools from this website to start the process of generating logs my IE was also acting strange: it would start the downloading process, but when I selected "Save As" from the download notification at the bottom the popup window would immediately close and not let me designate where to save the files. After running AVG and Malwarebytes and fixing what was found there I have not had a repeat of this behavior, but I still have the IE processes running in the background. I hope this information helps, I will post the logs in the next post. Thanks for your help.
