Hi there everybody, im always trying to keep my pc clean and its my very 1st time that i ask for help at forum.
As i start my PC the iexplore.exe process is running and as soon as i kill it - the other one appear.
Im using firefox as my browser and i still have my IE on some old version (5 i think).
I have searched for help online but without pretty much success, i know that its some sort of virus (sometimes a random web page pops up in middle of my work) and i really want to get rid of it.
P.S i see my hijackthis log somehow long but please note that my PC is like 5 years old now and i just keep upgrading it rather than buy a new one.

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post an OTListIt log in THAT forum.

If you can get rid of the virus then next thing to do is reformat your hard drive. This is your last resort cause data might be lost if you did not partiton your hard drive.
