This is frustrating me to no end. My antivirus program gives me that two threats are detected every 1 hour and ten minutes exactly for the past two days, first attempted connection was on 7/13 at 8 pm, and has been attempting to connect. It tells me it is coming from iexplorer, but I do not use IE and do not have it running, Chrome or FF is used. The computer has been running exceptionally slow, for a few days now also.

What I have done so far:
Scanned 5 times with Avast
Multiple runs of CCleaner
Abexo Registry Repair - in attempt to find why slowing down
Smart Defrag - also attempts to find slow down issues
Ran 1 time with Windows Live OnCare Scanner - found nothing
Norman Malware Scanner - This states it found 8 files but only deleted 7, log will be below.
The files Norman removed did not stop the problem, and plan on running Norman again.

I am pretty sure this has to be something in the processes running that is triggering it, I have stopped any processes running that are iexplorer. The link it is blocking is:<7304x644503x4x4x,5=6x556x

As I said this happens like clockwork at 1 hr 10 min. Next attempted connection should be at 11 am about 20 minutes from posting. I do have multiple hard drives on computer, but only primarily use the C drive, my second drive was named to F. I am unsure of what this actually is, and just really want to remove whatever is triggering it.
