My computer has been acting funny the past few days.
my computer runs XP Pro, Service Pack 3
I use Norton Internet Security, and been receiving the following the following message the past couple days:
"An intrusion attempt by "my computer" was blocked. Application Path:\DEVICE\HARDDISKVOLUME2\PROGRAM FILES\INTERNET EXPLORER\IEXPLORE.EXE"
Yesterday I downloaded Malwarebytes to try and find the problem, and it found a few issues, but nothing that looked like this issue. Today, I've been getting iexplore.exe opening by itself in the "Processes" window and then Malwarebytes would give me this message: "IP-BLOCK 188.8.131.52 (Type: outgoing)"
I keep shutting down "iexplore.exe" from the processes and it keeps opening itself back up.
About an hour ago I got a message of Norton Security that Trojan.Dropper by detected by Auto-Protect and quarantined.
ixplore.exe keeps opening and trying to acccess the remote ip address. So I am definitely infected with something, but Norton and Malwarebytes can't find it. Please Help!!
I downloaded Hijackthis to help, anyone have any suggestions? Thank you!
