Exclamation iexplore.exe running in background.
Hello, I mainly use Firefox as my main browser, and for some reason the iexplore.exe process is open in task manager, and I can hear it making a "click" noise, and a bunch of ads, like "Congratulations! You Won!" Also, it automatically re-opens once i end the process. and I think I have adware or something. I recently downloaded an exe and opened it (big mistake) and ever since then this has been happening. I've Scanned for problems in spybot search &destroy after updating, but I can't immunize because I can't close the iexplore.exe task! I've also seen one pop-up from iexplore.exe. Can someone please help me with this.
I mainly only use AVG, and Spybot S&D.
