I've noticed some significant slowing in my computer as well as the whirring sound of the fan of a "working" computer. I checked the Windows Task Manager and found that the "Mem Usage" for iexplore.exe is running between 60,000k and 109,000k (current). I've looked online and it seems this is happens to others on an infrequent basis -- not to enough people to warrant an "easy" Spybot cleanup (or similar). I run AdAware, Spybot, Windows Defender, Anit-Virus Group (AVG), and Zone Alarm.

Please advise and help if possible. I'm open to comments and suggestions.

Thanks.

Now that you have an open HJT log posted in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis forum, you shouldn't make any changes to your system.
Doing so could change the results of the posted log, making it difficult to properly clean your system.

At this point, the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Thank You, OF
