Recently, i found that IE8 would be running in the background using Several thousand I/O reads in 'Processes' in 'Windows Task Manager'. i first noticed this when i was watching a movie and could hear a typing sound in the background. at first i thought this was the quality of the movie. i paused the movie and closed the browser (chrome) but the typing continued. i then checked WTM and could see that IE8 was taking up several I/O reads. i ended the process of IE8 and the typing went away. IE8 was running and using up the most I/O reads which i think might have meant that someone was piggybacking on my computer and using the browser, the typing was pretty common as in it was most likely human based on the frequency of the typing.

i noticed
rundll32 "C: \Windows\$NtUninstallMTF197$\sfclp.dll",,Run

running on the startup programs through msconfig and was wondering whether this was the root of the cause.
i started finding that every time i open IE8 that the typing sound is still there and there are random sites, under the resotration of previously closed sites. the one that is open most of the time is

http://cnfg.kusochtak.com/cnfg/actv.htm

which doesnt actually show anything but i think it might be an infected site allowing access to my pc

any help in this matter will be much appreciated

i dont use IE8 its just there as a tertiary browser after Mozilla and Chrome which is my primary browser
