iexplore shows up time to time as a running process(CNTRL-ALT-DEL) and I generally know when it is there,because my system slows down, especially when I'm browsing for awhile. If I highlight it, end task it system reaction speeds up. Sometimes it shows twice on list of running processes. What is this anyway?

To eliminate a couple of things, boot the PC and keep tapping F8 right after the beep until you get options, select command prompt only, type scanreg.exe /fix then press enter, it will run through a few screens then say registry repaired. Press enter then press ctrl + alt + delete keys together to reboot.

When it has loaded, click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools, system information, tools then run system file checker and replace any files it asks for from the 98SE CD.

Running these checks the registry and files for Windows are in place.

It sounds like you may have picked up some trojans or adware.
