Last week I noticed that I had no sound on my computer. A few days ago I noticed that I would have Internet Explorer pop up ads appearing regularly (I use Firefox). The pop ups led me to believe I had a malware problem so I did a full scan using Microsoft's malware tool. As I saw that the scanner was taking forever in Temporary Internet Files I checked the directory and found over 50 sub-directories and they were all full of images, videos, and all the other crap that gets saved there. I started deleting the folders and realized that new ones were popping up. I went to the Task Manager and under Processes noted several iexplore.exe files running. I stopped them all but more kept starting up.
I re-boot into safe mode and ran Malware Bytes, Symantec, Spybot, and online scanners at Eset and Panda. Some came back with nothing, others showed issues, fixed them but my iexplore.exe problem continues.
I hope someone has seen this before and can point me in the right direction.
Thanks in advance for your help.
