In case you notice iexplore.exe running in the background at startup in the Task Manager list

This seems new since most of the software is missing it ... Dr Web caught it:

iexplore.exe runs in the background on startup. depending on your config you might (or might not) notice it visiting a website such as p4FD96C53.dip.t-dialin.net. you can (probably) kill the process.

if the syste has folder & file c:\windows\system32\win32ini\svchost.exe (or similar in the windows dir), you may have this
you may also see extra copies of iexplore.exe where they're not supposed to be (search the c drive).

The newly created Registry Values are:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{803458AF-6312-B648-9593-7E7F006F550D}]
stubpath = "%System%\win32ini\svchost.exe s"

so that svchost.exe runs every time Windows starts
