Lately I have found that my computer has been running slower and random audio of Advertisements have been playing however not till today I have discovered that Inter Explorer was open in task manager but not on my desktop. Task manager was showing Internet Explorer opening multiple websites such as "whatismyIp" as soon as I saw this I panicked and am now wondering how may I stop/Solve this from continuing

FWIW:  One instance of iexplore.exe is displayed in Task Manager as a process...always.  For every window/tab opened, 1 additional process appears in Task Manager.
