    Internet Explorer keeps running in the background, I end the the process in task manager and within minutes it reopens again. The longer I leave it, the more memory it seems to use. It also keeps pulling the focus away from Mozilla Firefox, causing me to be unable to continue typing without clicking back on the Firefox window.

    I read an older post correcting this problem, but a lot of the advice was based on the results of his running scans, so I am not sure if the same process would help me.
