Newbie here! But I have discovered that my pc is most likely infected with iexplore.exe. anyone out there that can help?
I can't run any adaware, registry cleaner, virus scan, etc.
when I open the task manager there are multiple (8+) iexplore.exe running. When I close one it multiplies causing the cpu useage to spike up and down. Nothing else can run.

My McAfee had detected a registry change, which I blocked.
Affected Items: HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-2025429265-842925246-854245398-1005\software\microsoft\windows\current version\internetsettings\zonemap\Ranges\me\:Range
This didn't help.
Running very slowly and if left to sit will reboot about every thirty minutes and then it runs a disk scan.
it may be that you have SPYWARE, or a TROJAN ,check out the links to see :

hope those links can clear up your prob.

Nothing against Antivirus software, but new custom trojans, worms, spyware, malware are coming out everyday.

Download a firewall (new one with default settings), when it asks for permission check out what's going on, permissions, ports. If you look into these things you usually can find out what it is, or what it's doing. You could also check out the data sent to there, what all is being sent. Might yield useful info.
