Hi i have recently just formatted my PC, i have been running Windows Vista for years now and not had any major problems.

But the other day i was trying to install photoshop cs3 , when the installation prompted me to shutdown firefox & internet explorer,
i thought to myself that's a bit weird as i do not use Internet explorer.

So i opened task manager and went to the process tab, where i noticed there were 2 processes of iexplorer.exe running. When i try to end these processes it allows me to kill one but not the other and then after a couple of seconds the one i just killed reappears.

i am running the latest adware 2008 and done full scan and result was nothing
i am running the latest Kaspersky internet security and done a full scan and the result was nothing

These processes are still there

and i cannot install photoshop until these are gone.

Any help on this matter would be very much appreciated. :)

This is usually malware trying to access the internet. Please go to the malware forum and see if you are clean first.
