Default iexplorer Hijacked can someone find it?

Once i laod up my iexplorer 6 it is hijacked and moves to the side of the screen where i can not find it or see the window. i have tried deleting all the temp files and have run spy bot and adaware yet it is still happening. i know of one way to get it off i think is to reformat hardrive but knowing my luck it will come back out of the blue and hit me again.
