It's normal to have two iexplore.exe processes reflected in Taask Manager...when there is one IE window open.

For every additional window opened...another process appeaars.

If I have 5 windows open...my Task Manager should reflect 6 instances of iexplore.exe.

Just make sure that they all read "iexplore.exe" since "iexplorer.exe" is malware.

Checked the task manager it is iexplore.exe.
I did not know about the process that comes on in the task manager when you open another additional window.
Thanks for your kind help Louis
