Default IEXPLORE.EXE virus???

Hello...recently ive noticed that my comp has been laggin sort of...went to check the processes running and noticed that IEXPLORE.EXE was running even though i dont run internet explorer (i use firefox). So i tried terminating the process, but everytime i terminated it, another process called IEXPLORE.EXE would pop right back up. So i tried running internet explorer and now im getting pop ups...ive rad adware, spybot, spykiller...EVERYTHING...and this isnt going away. Ive also noticed that there is a folder in my documents and settings/Application Data called "SaveHeckMail" and inside has WindowDrive.exe that i CANNOT remove becuz it says its in use by another program. Here is my hijack this log. Can ANYONE plz help?

C:\WINDOWS\System32\spool\drivers\w32x86\3\hpztsb0 4.exe

is the only bad entry that I can see, all the others apear to be legitimate.
to delete the random file (WindowDrive.exe) I suggest that you start in safe mode and rename it,
then try an appliation like regcleaner to remove redundant registry entries, (this will also give you a bit of a performance boost as wel as it clears out the registry a little.
