It's probably nothing. If you open up Internet Explorer (iexplore.exe) once it's already open, it can start a new process.

And, there are certain games and programs that use iexplore.exe, even Windows may do it. Though please do not include an HJT log, these are for when you think you are infected. If you think you are infected, please start an new topic in the "Am I infected, what do I do?" section of this forum.
