A couple of days ago I had noticed that something was maxing out my CPU so I had taken a peak in Task Manager to find out who the culprit was.
It turned out to be 'ieplorer.exe', which struck me as being just a bit odd as I didn't have any browsers open at the time. I clicked on it to end the task.
Now I'm remembering that that isn't the first time that this has happened. So my questions are: Is there any such thing as a browser running in the background? If there is, what would be its purpose for wanting to be sneaky like that? Is that something to worry about as far as my PC's security goes?
Thanks to anyone for any help.
