Hi everyone

I noticed recently i have a bunch (8+) of iexplore.exe running on task manager and they are consuming alot of memory, slowing down my pc, even tough im not using internet explorer at all. I use firefox and im running kaspersky pure. I tried to shutdown the processes manually but soon they comeback and grow in number. Sometimes I can shutdown all the processes, terminating only 1 of them (the one using more mb (sometimes 50mb+)) which I think is controlling the other ones. I think this is malware, but im not sure how to get rid of it, and fix the issue..

Thank you in advance for your help.

Maike

Please...post a screenshot of Task Manager which diesplays the multiple IE processes...and ensure that IE has no browser windows open.

Thanks, I've moved your topic to the Am I Infected forum, where the more knowledgeable can have a look.
