Why can nothing rid my PC of iexplore.exe

It multiplies itself in Windows Task Manager, eating up the memory, so that performance gets slower and slower until the PC effectively grinds to a halt.

I have just had the complete scan treatment by Avast for the first time and this has not dealt with it. Why not??  (although it did find and quarantine other stuff, thanks v. much).

I have also run MBAM, adwcleaner and ComboFix, all of which have failed to eliminate this menace which is iexplore.exe

Why is this so difficult to deal with?

Are there any former sufferers out there who found a solution to the problem?

what version of internet explorer are you running? anything below and including 8 Shula be updated to a newer version. Try updating to a newer version, and see if this resolves your issue.

Since you have already run ComboFix...you should initiate a new topic in the Malware Removal Logs forum.\\

 

Please follow Steps 6-8 of Preparation Guide, Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic34773.html  and post the requested DDS log, along with your ComboFix log, in the new topic you create.  Post that new topic in the same forum which contains the Prep Guide linked to above.

 

Once that is done, this topic will be closed to avoid confusion.

 

Thanks :).

 

Louis
