Hello, I am running XP Prof-SP2. I have a virus/trojan which disguises itself as "iexplorer.exe". it has taken me
a good while to find this, as none of the virus/malware programs I downloaded recognized it. The Windows Task manager
shows me that I'm running 2 and sometimes 3 processes called iexplorer.exe..which hog the CPU usage. I have read many
suggestions on how to be rid of these, but the only ones that made sense involved making sure that the speed of the "real" file
could be identified, since the "false" one was outrageously? fast.
I have download a prog called Killbox which offers the chance of getting rid of the file. My problem is that the Task Manager is
the only place where I can see the real and fake running along-side each other, and the delete option there causes problems with my deaktop.
Can anyone suggest a place where I might see the progs as they run, in order to delete? (difficult to explain clearly)
I hope I have posted in the right place, and I thank in advance anyone who might assist me.
