I have a computer under my care that is acting strangely. The problem manifests itself in iexplorer.exe . The program is eating up TONS of memory sometime 80k, and shows up twice in the task manager when it is only running one instance of the program. It's IE8. I've run spybot search and destroy, AVG virus scan, and the Malicious Software removal tool, to no avail. i'm running Windows Xp professional Version 2002 SP 3. Confession: I did run combo-fix and it repaired an infection at C:\windows\system32\kernal32.dll .
