i have run scans, and can end the process manually, and it will not come back till i start up again, but i cant find where it is coming from. I check registry startup, startup folder, msconfig startup, and still nothing. what can I do? It does not show internet explorer, but the process is there. also, i had uninstalled avg, and it said i had to end the process:svenska tv tablaer - iexplore.exe so i dont know what that is about. any ideas of what i could do?

Enable hidden files, and search your computer for iexplore.exe. Post its location(s).

Get Autoruns: http://www.microsoft...s/Autoruns.mspx
Check all tabs for iexplore.exe

All looks normal...hmmmm
Open HJT, go Config button>Misc Tools button, click on "Generate Startuplist log" (make sure two boxes, next to it, are checked).
Post the log.

I can't see any presence of iexplore.exe running
Can you post a screenshot from Task Manager, showing iexplore.exe process?

I think, the only reason for iexplore to show up is some kind of infection...

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
