With my laptop, I had processes called iexplore.exe and iexplorer.exe. iexplore.exe ate up all of my CPU usage, I started getting weird popups and eventually it got so that as soon as I log onto my machine (Windows XP) it immediately logs me off. My laptop still isn't fixed and I was recently given a desktop to use and it is already infected also. I am ready to give up on PC's completely and go to a Mac. You shouldn't have to be a system administrator to use a computer and keep it running. I have read online and tried everything. One guy said to download SuperAntispyware, SpyBot, and CCleaner, open the computer in Safe Mode, run both scans and then run the CCleaner and I should be good. Tried it and this thing is still there. If anyone has any advice, I would love to hear it because I haven't had any luck fixing this on my own. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hey, I have the same problem. Right now im doing a Norman Malware Cleaner scan and it seemed to pick up and remove some files that neither malwarebytes or avast could. Im not sure if these are the worst ones though, but ill write back as soon as I know more
