So this process just shows in the task manager when i am not even running internet explorer and it keeps playing random audio and pop ups every once in a while and alot of mouse clicks. I run windows xp professional. I've tried malwarebytes, avg, spyware terminator (full scans on all of them) and they seem to not be able to detect it. I tried changing the file extension on the iexplore.exe and it just creates a new one once i do that. I am so stumped on this one

Edit: Before this post i already ran a combofix on my computer because it was recommended to me by a person at work and they said its okay to run it. I didn't know that my post can possibly be ignored because of the fact that i ran combofix.
