Hopefully someone can help me out..
Last night picked up something just before shutting down. Today I have multiple occurrences (25) of Iexplore.exe in the task manager running all at about 6,100K (0 CPU) and 1 at 12,000K (8 CPU) that can't be stopped. Last attempt to kill all of them ended up with multiple occurrences of svchost.exe popping up..

Running Symantec Endpoint Protection. The only thing it picked up was Backdoor.Ciadoor (cleaned by deletion) 4440.exe - Last night.
Ran Spybot today with nothing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.. Kind of at a stand still..
Have hijackthis_sfx.exe and OTL.exe already downloaded..


Note: Followed the Malware and Spyware cleaning guide. Seems to have fixed the Iexplore.exe issue but system seems unusually slow.
