Switched my machine an this morning and heard 4 or 5 mouseclicks

over the speakers - music then started to play in background without showing the IE browser.

It seems somehow that IEXPLORER.exe is launching itself ?????


Tried a few spywares, sophos and Zonealarm running.


Any ideas most appreciated

Was it decent music?
Kidding! Try disabling 3rd party browser plugins in Tools>Internet Options>Advanced.
