    hi. was hoping that someone could shed some light for me. recently i've noticed a strange iexplore program running in my windows task manager (see attached pic).

    i don't know what it is, or why it's there when my pc boots up. if i end task it... nothing seems to be affected on my computer. i've also attached my hijack log below. does anyone know what this is? i'm about 80% sure it's not a virus or malware but would like a second opinion. i believe it's the explorer.exe in the hjt log... but the icon itself looks like internet explorer.

    i've run the usual virus/malware scans and nothing seems to pop-up.

    also... if it's normal... how do i get rid of it from start-up?

    many thanks.

    Primary Solution :

    Go to Start >> Programs >> Startup Items and see if this file is there remove it.

    Secondary Solution : ( If first doesnt work")

    Otherwise Go to Start >> Run >> Type "msconfig" Press Enter and Select " Startup" Tab the Last One and see if this "File is ther" Uncheck it.

    Final Solution :(If not solved from above two)

    Search the file at you system and delete.

    if still not solved then

    it may be virus. scan from Update Norton and delete it . Or go to "www.pandasoftware.com" and run activescan. then find the path and deleted it.

    Primary: it is not located in my start-up

    Secondary: it is not located in msconfig

    Final: when i delete the file and boot-up... my desktop, taskbar, etc... will not load. all i get is my desktop wallpaper.

    i've run several scans from norton, panda, kaspersky, etc... nothing detected.

    does anyone know why this icon is present? i'm starting to think it may be some sort of windows process that is loading. but i haven't changed anything recently on my computer. any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Normally that runs in people's proceses, and normally if you end the proceses it will do as u described above... as i have done it before lol.. on accident... So no i wouldn't belive it to be a virus just normally doesnt run as a application.. so idk how to fix... Justn figured i'd throw my 2 cents in...
