I have a process running called iexplore.exe, two when I loaded IE (I generally only use Firefox), when I kill the process, it loads again immediately and is consuming a lot of resources. It is also really annoying because the computer randomly un-focuses on the program I am using quite often.

I have scanned my system with Avast!, Ad-Aware and Spybot Search & Destroy and none of them have fixed the problem. I also tried to have IE connect to a non-working proxy 0.0.0.0 port 80 so it wouldn't connect to the Internet, but then Firefox stopped working as well, so reversed that setting to normal. Here is the JijackThis log:

As this issue appears to be resolved I am closing the topic. Please send me (or any other Moderator) a Personal Message (PM) if you would like the topic re-opened.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
