    So I see IExplorer in the processes list everytime I boot up the computer and go into windows. Its like just hidden somewhere and I have to end the process to make it go away. I tried googling but nothing came up. Any ideas?

    Edit: I looked closer and its not explorer, its explore.

    sounds like you need to do a system scan for virii. Check startup programs with msconfig. Do you see it there? Run adaware, spybot and hijack this.

    scan your computer for spyware , use both adaware and spybot for that

    Microsoft's Internet Explorer process is iexplore.exe so if you have an iexplorer.exe process running I'd say that's a dead cert malicious program.

    Try to run cwshredder, its a small but very good free tool for ie hijacks. Start also spybot before processes start at windows start. And than check what starts with windows at spybot advanced options, don't get fooled by trojan imitators
    If this won't help, rename iexplorer.exe to something else and that can cause spyware or virus to fail.

    Its IEXPLORE.EXE. it seems as if IE tries to pop up and then goes away. I've tried using spybot if that helps anymore. I even uninstalled IE.

    This is a spyware/malware related problem. From my extensive exprience in work, the combination of Spybot and Ad-aware will normally capture 90% of them. Sometimes you need to manually hunt the problem down or use different software to remove it.

    I'm confused are you sure it's Internet Explorer and not explorer exe .?

    Reason I ask is I'v never seen IE load at start up .

    I'm kind of thinking along Chewie's thought as I'v seen Documents load at start which would be explorer exe . Have never seen IE load tho .

    yeah, its IE. When I log into windows. I see a glimpse of IE pop up every few seconds and its in the processes list. This shit is pissing me off though.

    Could it be a browser hijacker maybe ? Your Antivirus or Spyware program should alert you to that tho .

    I hope you get it sorted tho . Things just don't pop up on a clean system .
