Hey all,

I have a zombie problem. I've located what I'm confidant is a virus, it's in my Program Files\Internet Explorer folder, posing as the following:

iedw.exe, iexplorer.exe, a folder called Connection Wizard and hmmapi.dll.

The iexplorer exe keeps on running itself in my task manager and when I end the process it'll return in about 30 seconds. I did quite a bit of snooping and decided my best bet would be to totally annihilate Internet Explorer as I don't use it anyway. So, I went to the folder, deleted everything with no real trouble, when about 5 seconds later the above files sprouted back to life. They were supposedly last modified somewhen in 2004, but considering my computer was little more than a pile of components back then, I think there's something suspect afoot.

So like I say, I can delete them, rename them, move them, whatever, but when I go back to my program files folder, there it is, another Internet Explorer folder with the above files. Is there someway I can delete them for good? I know with the real life zombies you tend to obliterate them with a shotgun, but this might prove a little tricksier.

Thanks, -Trumpkin
