Hi,

This has bugged me for months and I've posted it here I think once before. When I my PC boots up I have the following in my running processes Iexplore.exe now people tell me this is Internet Explorer which given the name sounds probable. And I have searched it on my PC and it indeed looks like IE but what I wanna know is why is it in my running processes even before I open IE?

Why does my pal who has virtually the same PC as me not have this? If I close it comes back. I can't find it in the RUN AT STARTUP part of my registry or anything?

Also if I close it and then open IE it's not there? so why is that? if it's IE then surely when I run IE it would be running? I've long since thought it was a trojan of somekind but I can't find any answers?

Anyone?

BTW in my running processes it is always written as Iexplore.exe, if I search my PC for that the only match is IEXPLORE.EXE which is in my C:/PROGRAM FILES/ INTERNET EXPLORER folder, so is this the same file, or is the lower case hiding as something else? can it do that?
