hello i am new and all and i really have this problem with my computer, let me explain

whenever i am using paint, firefox, etc. , the page suddenly goes inactive for about a second and then goes back to being active. This bothers me because whenever I type, the page goes inactive for about a second and i misspelled or when im scrolling the inactiveness stops it. It keeps doing this every 30 seconds or so. I decided to look up on task manager process info and i noticed something odd, whenever the page goes inactive an iexplorer.exe suddenly appears for about a second and dissapears when the page goes back to being active. I decided to pause it at the moment when the page went inactive and i stopped the iexplorer from dissappearing. I then tried to end the proccess figuring that it might end it for good but i got a message saying access denied and "the operation was denied for this proccess". And as soon as i put the speed back to normal on the task manager the iexplorer.exe dissapeared once more.

OVERALL, I want to know how to stop this issues and get rid of that appearing and dissapearing iexplorer.exe because it seems to be the problem. Please give me a solution and i am fairly a newbie when it comes to these things and i am pretty sure that iexplore.exe is behind it.

thank you

It sounds like you could have an infection that's calling home. Try this free, independent virus scan to see what's up: http://housecall.trendmicro.com

If you are infected, I'd suggest posting over in the Am I Infected forum located here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/
If not, post back with the results and we'll move on from there.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
