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!
