this problem started when the computer was hooked up directly to a cable modem with no router and no firewall. originally i was getting iexplore.exe processes all over, after using an extensive list of anti-everything programs (nod32, combofix,adaware,spybot,counterspy, avira antivirus, avg, aqsuared) i was able to fix some of it. was in and out of safe mode and have done tons of scans. no luck. here are some log files, i hope you can help, thanks in advance!
