I'm new to the forums, and originally posted this in the introduction forum and it was suggested I post this here, so here it goes!

For my question- I'm not sure if anyone else has this problem or not. It showed up about a week ago. I've noticed that if I open windows task manager, I have an extra iexplore.exe running; both iexplore.exe's will have different memory usage. For instance if I try it now, one has 20k the other has about 44k. If I end the process tree for one, my browser window will shut off.

I am not sure why I have an extra internet explorer running on the task manager if I have just the one window up. I noticed this problem after I downloaded internet explorer 8 a week ago.

I use avast! and have run scans and keep on top of updates. I've gone through windows registry and while they don't recommend playing with that, I know what programs I don't use anymore or at all and remove them. I leave anything else alone if I don't know what it is.

I also just noticed that there is a separate forum for hijackthis logs, so I will be posting mine there.

I appreciate any feedback =)

jenarie, since you gone ahead and posted a HijackThis logfile in the HijackThis forum I am going to close this topic here. If you need it reopened just ask a moderator to reopen it for you. Please do not post a new topic regarding the issue you are having.

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.
