Last night while I was online I saw the little Java icon pop up, so I unplugged and scanner for any activity with CCleaner and Spybot. Nothing was found. Earlier today I was watching a video and saw a message that said 'lost focus to: iexplorer.exe'. I checked my Task Manager and iexplorer.exe is running. Every time I try to kill the process it just starts again 30 seconds or so later.
I never use Internet Explorer, just Firefox. I'm not sure what it's trying to do, but it just keeps opening. So far today I've run AVG, Registry Mechanic, and Super Antispyware. None of them seem to be able to stop this.
Every once-in-a-while I get a pop-up for some random ad. or website, but I'm not sure what else iexplorer.exe is trying to do in the background???
I've just notice something else. I went to Program Files and renamed iexplorer.exe to something else. After a few seconds a new iexplorer.exe application just pops up! I tried three times and a new one just kept re-appearing!!
I'm willing to run and post any logs, does anybody have any ideas?
