Can someone please help me? I am not exactly a genius when it comes to computers, so I need some help with a problem. My computer was starting to run slow, so I went under CTRL+ALT+Delete and tried to get rid of something called Iexplore. I would select it and press End Task, and then get rid of it, but it would always keep coming back. When I went on my computer the next morning, Iexplore had completely filled up my computer. When I went to CTRL+ALT+Delete, there were probably over a hundred occurrences of Iexplore. I had to shut down my computer and restart it, but Iexplore kept coming back every time I would delete it. I am trying to get rid of this, but I have no idea how to. If someone could help, I would appreciate it. Thanks.

Iexplore.exe is the Internet Explorer executable (at least when the file in question is located in the Internet Explorer folder in Program Files)

HOWEVER, a number of trojans, worms and adware use this file name (as well as countless other familiar ones) in order to pass unnoticed.

I therefore suggest you go to the Malware Removal/Hijack This logs section of this board, launch a new topic, again explain your problem and post a Hijack This log.

Someone will be happy to help.
