iexplore.exe has been using between 90 and 100 percent of the CPU with kernal running in the 70 - 90 range. This occurs both with IE running and with it not. I have tried updating java and reinstalling IE but the problem keeps returning. It will last enywhere from 30 minutes to several hours and makes using the system almost impossible.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi sls009, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

You could try downloading and running Firefox, it is a stand alone browser which gives you another modicum of protection, many of us use it here.

If you download this and still have a problem you may still have an infection.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

dc3 ~ thanks for the quick reply. While I would love to load Firefox (I use it at home), I am in a corporate environment where I am not able to do so as it is not an approved application within the network.

Is this IE 7? Try uninstalling it, see if the problem persists, then reinstall it

Tried 7. Even tried the 8 beta... Sometimes rebooting clears the problem for a few hours, sometimes it does not. This is realling starting to drive me to the funny farm! :thumbsup:

How certain are you that you are malware-free?

You can't really be sure, you can run all the anti-viruses in the world and it might not find any thing so it's impossible to know :thumbsup:. Try running it without add ons on accessories and system tools :flowers: It worked for me.
