multiple iexplorer and sound turns off

Unread postby jgags » July 15th, 2010, 10:05 pm

I have a problem that multiple iexplorer processes are opening in the background (occasionally popping up windows) and the sound gets turned off after a few minutes (sound comes back on if I reinstall the sound drivers). Any help would be much appreciated (this has been very frustrating as my antivirus software can't find it).

I found a bootkit using the instructions at [link removed by administrator] Presumably I could have also used the Windows Recovery Console and run 'fixmbr' for Windows XP to remove it. After removal of the bootkit and a little cleanup (found an infected PDF that was likely the original vector) things seem to be working well now.
