Hi there!

I have a problem with my windows xp pc and iexplore.exe.

7 months ago i thought this problem was fixed but now i get random typing noise and the sound lower itself down withouot noticing.

Before i had some very strange adds but when i looked on the task manager iexplore.exe was popping up. I am using firefox mostly and i never used internet explorer on this machine.

I downloaded ZoneAlarm and blocked the process iexplore.exe for a while because malwarebytes and other spyware/virus software didn't find anything. It stood steady for 7 months until it started to appear again.

Random typing noises, like those on the keyboard, main sound cut, and on the task manager iexplore.exe pops up again! i can delete it all i want it just comes back...please help me!
