A few days ago, AVG caught what was supposedly a trojan. I kept quarantining a file called "mcoexp_vhbtgp.dll" which it dubbed "Trojan horse Generic20.PQR" about half the time I opened a new tab or link in firefox, and even when opening the control panel. After doing several deep scans with AVG, malwarebytes, spybot search and destroy, and one with SUPERAntispyware, I thought I was clean.

However, I've noticed that in my task manager, iexplore.exe *32 is always running now, even after a restart, and I can not kill the task. When I try, I get the error:

"The operation could not be completed. Either the target process, or the target thread's containing process, is a protected process."

I'm unsure of what to do next.

Edit: Forgot to mention that Im running on 64bit windows 7
