My laptop's Screen saver REFUSES to start, and it upsets me because I use it as a Clock in my Den. After doing some research I decided to run through all my processes and see if I could find a virus or something that was running that would cause my screen saver to not run. I was online looking up the names of processes AKA CMD.EXE to make sure it was a "good" process. When I stumbled upon, 4 iexplore.exe running!
Issue, when ever I run IE8 it opens 2 instances of iexplore.exe, in about 1 min, another process is open, and then after about 5 minutes a fourth and final is opened! BAH! I rarely get viruses or worms/malware!
I know it's a virus/malware, but I can not seem to find it! Neither can, Avast(virus scanner) Spybot, Adaware, or Hijack this! I do not have anything running in the start up processes. Also I have uninstalled and re-installed IE8 and it took less than a day, for the multiple processes to come back!
I am here to ask this. How do I back track a process to see where it is running from? AKA iexplore.exe how to i find the host folder?
