iexplore.exe respawning

Unread postby QuasiAbstract » April 20th, 2009, 3:50 pm

iexplore.exe (no caps) keeps respawning, no matter how many times I run a virus scan. The program is blocked from using the internet, but the respawning will eventually drain my system resources. I keep stopping the processes, but eventually they start back.

Due to lack of activity this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
