    Hi, I had a problem with a virus and some malware before and was able to solve it with your help. Now it seems that iexplore.exe keeps showing up in the processes of the task manager and I don't use internet explorer. I think this was going on unknowingly when I was dealing with the other problems as I noticed that whenever I had some full screen application going, it would minimize itself randomly. I just happened to check the task manager after that happened alot and there were a bunch of iexplore.exe listed. They keep coming back after I close them. Here is my current HJT log. Thanks.
