iexplore.exe keeps turning up in my task manager and ive read somewhere that it could be a virus, and when i try to close it, it comes up with "heckfile.exe" for a second or two and iexplore.exe reappears.

I'm having a similar problem, only I think much worse. I'm hearing a "boop" sound and my PC freezes for a couple of seconds everytime it happens. This happens every 20-30 seconds so it's extremely annoying. I checked my processes in task manager and everytime I hear the "boop", IExplore.exe pops up on the list and then quickly disappears. I can't get rid of it. None of my anti-virus stuff is working, I tried to quarantine it with Ad-Aware and that didn't help. I was told to search for it and delete it but it keeps coming back. It's in C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch. Any ideas on what to do next?
