I have Windows 7 Home Premium, and I am getting a lot of grief from Internet Explorer, in that it is opening several instances of itself in the processes tab at startup.
explorerprocessesrunning.JPG 41.79KB 3 downloads
These are ALL iexplorer processes, and there are more off the screenshot. Every time I boot up the computer about 20 iexplorer processes start running.
This seems a biut excessive, since I have not even opened the browser at all, but if I choose end process, or end process tree, it just opens more processes running??
Also, if I try to actually open Internet Explorer from the desktop icon, it completely locks up my computer, and will not finish opening the home page!!
So, I know for a fact that I have some kind of virus that is causing this, but when I run Comodo, Spy Hunter, or SpyBot search and destroy, it comes back that nothing was found....
Anyway, I am wondering if anyone can tell me what is causing this, because I have a PC with Windows, so uninstalling Internet Explorer is impossible for me??
