Iexplore only comes up when I am running my instant messenger (Yahoo) and won't let it start up. At the same time I cannot bring up a browser either - Only works if I do a C-A-D and then hit End Task.

I did a full system scan, virus scan, spybot and adaware and nothing came up. Should I un-install Yahoo IM and then try this process again then re-install Yahoo IM?

Thanks in advance, any help would be great.

Hi Mel and welcome to GeeksToGo! My name is Excal and I will be helping you.

Iexplore.exe is a legit windows file. It is your internet explorer browser.

Hey Excal,

I did a google on it earlier and it said that is was spyware and to be wary of it. I noticed this file, which I'd never seen before, when I did the ctr-alt-del it came up.

Thanks for your input!
