Hey guys
I'm using Xp pro sp1(not sp2). My windows seems having a problem, iexplorer.exe cannot be killed via the task manager. As you guys know Normally when you have no internet browser open, then iexplorer.exe would not appear on the task manager.
I've tried so many ways, by using many anti virus + spyware + adware program to scanned the problem, but the programs doens't seemed to detect the issue of iexplorer.exe.
Here are my hijackthis list :

We can definitely help you, but first you need to help us. The first step in this process is to apply Service Pack 1a for Windows XP. Without this update, you're wide open to re-infection, and we're both just wasting our time.

Apply the update, reboot, and post a fresh Hijack This log.
