Hey all.


My troubles started today. All of a sudden XP started up 4 to 5 times slower.


iexplorer.exe process also consistently spawns forcing me to manually wipe it using the task manager. It spawns at random short intervals, begins at a small 76K mem and quickly balloons to >100,000K mem and continues to spawn another. At this point my computer slows to a halt and starts to crash. 


Currently scanning my computer with Malwarebytes.


Any help or advice on further action will be greatly appreciated.




PS - Will repost in the Logs section. Mods feel free to delete this thread.
