I have Windows XP and I'm getting annoying popups when I browse the web even when I don't click on anything. I checked Windows Task Manager, and found out that it's because of iexplore.exe because when I ended it, the popup would close. And I don't use internet explorer, I use Chrome. Then I tried multiple times to delete iexplore.exe but it always returns after I browse the web!!!
I scanned my computer with AVG but nothing was detected. I then tried a system restore and nothing changed. Later I read on a forum to fix it with TrojanRemover and HijackThis so I downloaded those but they didn't work. Anyway, now I've stumbled upon Combofixer from this forum, but I don't know how to use it. Can anyone please help me?

If it helps, it doesn't show up when I use Mozilla Firefox, only in Chrome. I don't know why. :thumbsup:
