However, when I fire up the P.C task manager is still convinced that there are two instances of IEXPLORE.EXE running, even when it is most certainly not. I'm sure I have malware, but before I go wasting your time and mine I'd like to know whether this sounds like malware to you.
I have tried ending these sort of 'ghost' tasks in task manager, but they just keep on returning two seconds later, after flashing up with INFOTO~1.EXE and occasionally a randomly named exe file.
I have ran several different reliable anti-virus, anti-spyware/adware scans, and deleted all files in the "temporary internet files" folder. It's beginning to drive me mad, as even though I am extremely happy with Mozilla; and my computer doesn't seem to have any obvious difficulties - except the initial IE problems - the blasted thing keeps on coming up in teh task manager!!! Oh and of course, for some mysterious reason I don't even have the standard windows paint program to allow me to show you screenshots of the problem! I have however managed to wack down a few of the "randomly named" exe files and here they are:
they flash up for about two seconds, so it is difficult to tell whether these are precise
Well, thanks for your time, and I'd appreciate a reply a.s.a.p
