Default Re: iexplore.exe question?

hehe i knew hyper threading acted as a virtual CPU, but I had no real idea it did that! And all the time, I thought my college had actually paid for a whole room full of dual Pentium 4 CPU's with HT Technology...ha!

As for that dual Iexplorer thing, I've heard this virus or trogan is going around. Have you got updated virus/spyware software? I insist you run some...

i have zone alarm pro,i have ad-aware i have avg free, ihave spybot and spyware blaster that all update regularely.
i do worry about zone alarm, i read somewhere that there is a virus that attacks it and nuetralizes it.

Well you shouldn't want to close Zone Alarm for it to go from your taskbar.

Weird that yuo have two running though, and none are noticing anything.

Is there any way anyone that this could still be that virus? Maybe theres a clean up tool somewhere on the net to test for it.
